Dance Gavin Dance - Strawberry Swisher pt. III (Official Music Video)

Merch: />iTunes: /> I was raised to believe All that I read Fall in line with meIt's all, all that I see Got a box of lies Gonna get you high With the words of wisdom that you need to hear Got a big ass book And I'm not a crook But ill take your guilt in the form of dollars Fall in line with meIt's all that seeWhat I believe Its all that Keep my fingers crossed I wanna be somewhere that I belong Never fold under pressure Keep my fingers crossed I wanna be somewhere that belong Never mind how I got there

The singer has a higher voice than me haha
Matthew Stevens
I think this is the band's best lineup and the band's best sound, I love the technicality and structures of their songs. The music videos are also fantastic.
Thx Wanderer
I've listened to every album and I can honestly say that each and every singer brought something new and interesting to DGD, whether it's intonation, voice structure, and pitch. Would I pick one over another? No. Would I bash on the current singer? No. Because at the end of the day, DGD is still amazing and talented. Spread good vibes.
Cassie White
Mingus is such a great drummer
I see that the artist is trying to find a soul to represent an actual unique personality but has all his hopes in the wrong people. The people who he thinks can fulfill his painting are the regular people who follow the standards of society; the people who are accepted and considered proper. That's shown when he cups the first girl and leads her; acceptance. Everyone doesn't realize that they all lack the substance that he desires because they are all the same and all accept the same standards that they all meet. When he see's the girl in the red dress he has no hope because he is blinded by humanity's standards of what is an honest unique personality. By the standards that he knows he cannot help but reject the actual unique person because he has no hope. The girl knows she is completely substance and goes to show him despite the artist's expectations. To his surprise, he finds what he is looking for. Theme of the video: to not neglect the people who are not considered acceptable or right because they are not like you, you might be surprised. Instead give them a chance to prove that they are what they claim. Basically. Do not shun anyone because they're different, accept each other for who we are.

Got a box of lies Gonna get you high With the words of wisdom that you need to hear Got a big-ass book And I'm not a crook But I'll take your guilt in the form of dollars Bold lyrics, Jon Mess.
Chris Doucet
Why is no one talking about the music video? Personally, I think the music video is about an artist who is looking for a pure soul, and is trying to use it through his art. Most of everyone comes out an all black splotch because they aren't 'pure' so nothing is preserved and everything comes out black. But there's one girl who is pure enough to have her purity remain on the painting. Idk, just what I think.
Bunku's Mixes
this is the first dgd song I've ever listened to I only came because of tilians work in tides and material me at first I was like meh but now dgd is my favorate band that wasn't even a year ago...
Tillian's smooth dance moves though....
Sergio Martinez
Dance Gavin Dance turns me on tbh.
Devon Goping
While the 1 percent argue over how amazing Jonny/Kurt/Tilian is and how terrible Jonny/Kurt/Tilian is, can I just say that OH MY GOD, WHAT HAPPENED TO JON MESS AND WHEN DID HE BECOME SO GOOD AT SCREAMING?!
Chris Marroquin
Johnny Craig, Kurt Travis, TIllian Pearson, Dance Gavin Dance has been blessed with 3 amazing vocalist, the sounds is different by all three yet it still is perfect Dance Gavin Dance from Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean to Acceptance Speech....
Brett Williams
my theory is this song is like talking about how some people blindly follow religion (i was raised to believe all that i read) Got a big ass book (bible) and i'm not a crook but i'll take your guilt in the form of dollars (offerings). Fall in line with me, it's all that i see ( follow the faith and accept it)  just a theory lol a GAME theory ;)
Jong-Jong Slownely
I was typing a comment in facebook when this played, and when Tillian did the intro, my fingers lost power.
Shelby Lamp
this has been stuck in my head for three days now. it will /not/ go away, i mean, i woke up this morning and it was literally the first thing that came to mind. That's okay though, it's pretty amazing
Hansel Franco
DGD they know how to pick singers. Jonny, Kurt and Tilian, they really knew how to make great music with this band. I think these guys are amazing also because they made an awesome job in the other bands they are and were. Even working alone they do a great job. Great singers, and great choice by DGD. This band never disappoints.
Sonia Blade
even with out jonny this band is amazing!
rising samael
ahh this was a suggestion a dude in a bus gave to me and i love it :)
Paddie Corley
As a young Christian it really bums me out that a lot of people have such a shit view of the church, the majority of people focus on the negatives that normally come in the form of corrupt people and forget about the positive, loving message that a church should be spreading in a respectful and tolerant manor, if it's doing "church" right that is. Being a lad of faith also makes songs like this hard to listen to which sucks balls cause damn this shit is good
I love when Jon at 00:53 Joins in singing Tillian's part an does a little dance haha.

I feel that Dance Gavin Dance is simply evolving the way their music is structured and I think its a good thing rather than a bad thing. Honestly, DGD has had three amazing singers so far, I envy the singing abilities of all three but I do agree that some are better than others, both skill and for the band.  I think Kurt Travis was best for what the band's soul and meaning was about. The album Happiness contained my best memories was an absolute immerse for me. Happiness, to me, embodied pure randomness and simply....even though maybe cliche, authentic happiness. When I listen to Happiness I feel a surging emotion of glee and upbeat vibrations that helped me stay smiling through chasing and being rejected by a girl. Kurt Travis' vocals alongside the band effectively changed the way they played as the band changes their style to conform to the singers voice to project it more strongly in my opinion. Jonny Craig is an AMAZING singer and although he was a very good singer for the band, he failed to represent what Dance Gavin Dance was truly about. I think the style of Jonny's singing sounded amazing when playing alongside the band but it sounded out of place at the same time.  Tillian's position as vocals for DGD is outstanding, it really is, but it seems that he makes the band closer to the "Post-hardcore stereotype" when it comes to singing; high pitched, wavering flavor. Tillian represents more of the band than Jonny as Jonny gave a more sensual vibe to the band but he isn't the best pick for the vocals as he comes between Jonny and Kurt is his place in the band.  But sadly bands move forward to appeal to new crowds and change their style of play to represent what they mean at different angles which may indeed be natural. I have to say that I like all of DGD's albums and hopefully will continue to like many more if they do not break up; please don't break up until I can attend a concert! That's just my lowly opinion on a band that I will admit, I am infatuated about. :) DGD FTW!
It's almost been a year since they released Acceptance Speech and this album still sounds as good and even better than I remember. Tillian fits this album so fucking well, like Its really hard to imagine Jonny or kurt singing these songs. Maybe kurt but Jonny definitely would've not fit the rhythm or the style
Ragtime Dandy
I think Happiness and this one are my favorite albums of them all. And I'll be honest, Jonny Craig is pretty overrated. I mean, he's alright but still
The high pitched vocalist sounds like claudio from coheed and cambria.
Andrew Oransky
Everyone is talking about the vocalists, but honesty I would be happy with them just being an instrumental band. The drums and guitar are so groovy and amazing!
At first I didn't like this new album. Probably because I was still use to Kurt and Johnny. Then, it definitely grew on me. Now, this has become one of my favorite albums along side Happiness. My only criticism...I wish they made more songs like Powder to the People. :P     
Angel Garcia
I've been a DGD fan for years and i love there tunes... They really should make a video for "Jesus H. Macy" I think it has the most heart in the album and there's so many ideas that can go with that song!
Mr. Steal Your Padawan
Johnny was a douche but had the best vocals in my opinion, tillians good for the bands image but his voice can be a bit much sometimes, but Kurt was just the heart and soul of this band dude I miss him
Nizzi Woods
Forever in love with Jon Mess. No homo. Or maybe yes.
Bilbo Tbaggins
Hipsters meet Post-hardcore.
Should be called Dance Tilian Dance, did you see those moves he was busting out?! 0:45
To the person trying to say Sleeping with Sirens is better then DGD, you do know Jesse, the person who wrote all the SWS songs quit the band? Kellin can't write to save his life.
Tbh I loved Johnny, but only the ep. I liked it a lot more when Kurt was in the band, happiness and their self titles were amazing. But Tillian is a great vocalist and he is a good a addition for DgD, plus he is amazing live and can sing their old stuff great. 
Allan Tober
Everything with the new stuff sounds good, but I can't get over the effect that's constantly on Tillian's voice. Why is that even necessary? I know I'm not the only one that can hear the "spaciness" of it.
Margaretta Cruz
It's exactly the same without Jonny. How about you all just stop complaining and just enjoy the music. They're AMAZING with tilian. I love it. I loved all the vocalist because they were all kickass brilliant. Jonny, Kurt, and Tilian are really good singers. Stop complaining. If you don't like it anymore then your loss.
Tom Martin
Really was expecting the vocalists to be the other way round !
Tyler Beaver
I'm sorry but this album and happiness are the best albums ever produced by this band. And I've been a fan from the start. Everyone only notices that Tilian voice is high, listen to How he sings. How his voice flowed with the instruments, it felt as if it was an exciting roller coaster ride in my mind, Not to mention the meaning in the lyrics and how the screams are placed in the song. It's all perfectly together, Every song is different, doesn't blend and has their own atmosphere. Instrumentally its a fucking piece of art. And the album is a masterpiece. They never disappoint. Six perfect albums (well one EP and then their was also the decent DBT2 albumm)
Stop fighting over who is better. Look at it like this; say all the vocalists have reached level 100 with the way of the voice, which means they all have an amazing talent. At that point what makes them better than one another? Nothing. It's all personal opinion from there on out.
oh god not another food video, after the one in the donut shop i think i'll pass
Am I the only person that likes this newest album the most?
Max Stavro
There is a deep meaning behind this song. Just cant put my finger on it.
Warrior Tha Witt
Wow this sounds really unique
people hating tillian, we all did the same thing when kurt was in the band, then he left and we decided to divide into kurt vs johnny, now theyre both gone we just hate on tillian, he's a fantastic singer yeah his vocals sound processed, layered and effected to hell on the record, thats not his fault he doesnt mix the vocals, but go watch his acoustic videos, the man sings fantastically 
Tim Mayer
this album reminds me of happiness
Karol Gacek
I'm crushing on those girls in the video <3 and I can't stop listening to the song, it's perfect.
I have loved DGD since Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean and my love has grown more and more for the band once each album was released. Their progression has been quite remarkable. Jonny, Kurt, and Tilian are all amazing but there's no need to differentiate and convey favoritism when they can all be your favorite and already be aware of their differences
goddamn. that two guitar attack. great instrumental arrangement throughout.
Tilian Pearson is better than Jonny Craig. #fact  
Marquise Long
It just doesn't feel right without Johnny
I'm not a fan of lineup changes, especially with lead vocalists. When I heard that Jonny Craig left, my first thought was, "Dead Odin, AGAIN??" But Tilian sounds good, and Jon Mess is still there, so I really can't complain. 
Sean David
Jonny Kurt Tillan all are great
Elliott Rivera
Saw this guys two days ago and Tillian was great man, he's actually able to keep those high notes very well, also met him, not such a bad dude. I think they're doing just great.
Kaya Vialva
This song is really good, I have no idea what it is about it but it's hypnotizing.
adrian sotelo
Wow I underestimated new DGD. They are growing on to me. 
I love jonny forever he started the band with swan but tillians is wierd with them im starting to like it i hear this album all day
That album was mixed poorly as hell. Song is great, but the mix has barely anything going for it.
you know, i loved Kurt, he was super dynamic just like a certain other someone. BUT, thats besides my point. i swear they made this song like in a year apart and actually in the same room :D (for real though, it seems like Tilian didn't hear any of the instrumentals prior to his vocal recordings, and then they just laid the tracks over each other. well, again, minus this song)
OP Gaming
these guys where amazing in concert
I really liked Tides of Man when Tillian was there and it came to my surprise that he joined DGD and wow he didn't disappoint me!
ssj3 pepe
kinda a let down compared to pt 1 and 2 lol
Justin Ranous
Dance Tilian Dance
This is just a great song.  It's in 4/4 but the drums would confuse a person who doesn't know different.  The guitar is all over the place: tons of tapping, a nice warm tone, melody all-around.  Vocals are a nice mix of screams and almost falsetto singing.  Just a nice arrangement.  Perfect, almost.
Ben Ling
consider this: the video is actually about a ~not like other boys~ softboi artist who thinks hes a genius for realizing society has imaginary constructs, and tries to encapsulate women into his image and preys on them as if they were objects, controlling them and envisioning them as his own person manic pixie dream girl. the reason they turn black on canvas is because his views are shallow, and the notion that hes somehow a "Deep Brooding Artist Genius" because of his own self-imposed conceptions of his difference and unique-ness are pathetic and serve as a narcissistic defense mechanism against his lack of a personality. the ending depicts the manipulation and exploitation of a vulnerable young woman, and ultimately tragically ends with her entombed in his perceptions of what makes an ideal woman (being different and substantive, as if all humans aren't). anyway point being: you're not hot shit for thinking society is dumb and you're unique, everyone is cool, and championing yourself for being ''''different'''' is usually code for lacking a personality. anyway the song is bopping, dgd is a jam.
Jimmy DeLaney
When it comes to diversity and originality Dance Gavin Dance > Every other band in the genre
I think this video is about how no matter what girl he finds, they'll always really be second to his "mistress" the envoy of the "black" that compels him to keep throwing them away again and again, turning them into the black stuff. ie addiction and using people and shit for money for drugs
Atalas Rawr
It's not bad, it's actually pretty awesome. Just not very memorable. Anyone else feel the same?
Ruby dooby doo
So....are the paint people dead?
travis snipes
Tillian is the man!
Anthony Ortiz
Each album is unique. Each singer they've had has been amazing. Dgd is a band that does nothing but create awesome music.
i loved Kurt but Tilian is amazing!
aj ver
Listening back to old albums, it's very hard to compare them. With the lineup changes and new styles, each album is unique and progressively became different. These guys work hard to put out music for their fans and I respect them for continuing to create music.
Arissa Butler
They just keep getting better and better.
Dante LAN-I-ER
This was almost three years ago. Damn....This song still brings me so much joy, though. I needed this when it first came out.
#stopbitching #enjoythemusic
epic tune here, hits home.
Angelo Miller
I really love this song. it has everything, great vocals, screams, food, art, and its such a great song. It gets a 10 out of 10 from me
andy arief
dude the guitar playing on this track is funky as hell tho
King HushHush
The band sounds way better with Tilion. The spirit of Gavin lives in there nostalgic sound. AMAZING VISUAL TOO, Director knows what he is doing
Jonathan Engelbart
I can't stop watching this video because of Jon Mess
Schyler Johnson
"I was raised to believe All that I read." Is speaking of religion. "Got a box of lies that's gonna get you high" Sub context for religion getting you "high on Jesus" I could be wrong but it sounds like blatant discussion of how religion is brainwashing and how we are raised to think a certain way. The video definitely pertains to finding the 'pure soul' in a person to display humanity. Just my perspective.
I honestly really like the new clean vocalist..
Roman Torchwick
Just putting down the idea before I forget it, I think it's about a guy who has really unrealistic expectations for relationships, and either ends up losing the people he cares about or taking a part of them away
Never liked DGD till Tilian joined. Their new and re-recorded stuff is awesome now. Going to see them in November
carmen gil
I had no idea that Kurt travis left DGD in my opinion he was better than Craig (and I really liked Craig!!) but there was something about Kurt that got me hooked up I am so sad he left :(
George Washington
stopped it 20 seconds in. i'm glad jonny left. 
this guy sounds way better than Johnny
agrail Ivanovna
im not crying, you re crying :c
capresse olijizz
ear orgasm....
Tom Guerrero
id love to know what that piano at the end is.
still s great vid overall but lacks the roughness of johnny's vocals like marquise says, and instead it seams like we get a candy-voiced-power-autotunned-by-5-audio filters-substitute... just doesnt sound natural :C... still <3 u guys in da most hetero way :*
Peter Perez
I love DGD, but any clean vocalist they have I pretty much consider to be a guest vocalist for an album or two.
Desert Goddess
does he say fall in love with me ;_; or fall in line with me
Hauntsy Wauntsy
Tillian Pearson was raised to believe all that he reads. Fall in line with him, it's all that he sees.
Tyler Adelman
This song just gave me goosebumps.
Two words.. Jon mess
Circa dude
I prefer tilian in tides of man dance Gavin Dance is a little too fast pace for his vocal Style. Jonny Craig was more suited for dance Gavin Dance both amazing singers though.
Lindsey Bentley
This song, man.
Alejandro Cisneros
one millions of views are mine :v i play the video once (or more) a day
