Los Angeles, CA — Dance Gavin Dance frontman, Tilian (Pearson), has unveiled his new single, “Half,” today. The new offering is an emotive electro-pop track, laced with soothing beats and catchy rhythms.
“I started building a studio and I wanted to put some beauty in the empty space. Matt Malpass (FEVER 333, Issues, Andy Black) came over and we made a batch of songs. ‘Half’ was my favorite. Fortunately, Rise Records was down with putting it out right away. I’m looking forward to building up an album’s worth of work over the coming months,” says Tilian.
Fans can listen to “Half” HERE and stream/download the song on all digital retailers HERE.
“On his new album, the singer affirms that no matter how many years go by, a true artist can always find a new frontier, not just to explore, but to conquer.” — Alternative Press
Tilian’s summer headline tour is also underway, which hits Atlanta this evening at The Masquerade. The slew of dates also runs throughout the southern U.S. before wrapping on the West Coast in Sacramento on Thursday, 8/22. Tilian is touring in celebration of his latest album, The Skeptic (Sept. 2018 via Rise Records), which hit the #1 spot on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist Chart and racked up 1.5 million total streams in just its first week alone. Tickets to all of the remaining shows can be purchased HERE, and a full itinerary can be found below.
“Explosive, emotional and absolutely stunning, every single track on The Skeptic shines for an entirely different reason.” — The Prelude Press
Tilian is currently working on his next solo album, with more information to be revealed soon. In the meantime, stay up-to-date with him on his social media platforms below.

San Jose, CA – Covet, the talented Bay Area trio of Yvette Young, David Adamiak and Forrest Rice, released a three song EP simply titled Acoustics, today via Triple Crown RecordsHERE.
“We wanted to create some mellower, more laid back versions of some songs on Effloresce, and also breathe new life into them with new accompaniments such as piano, violin, and even light vocals,” explained Young. “’We hope that with the new accompaniments, tempos and additional layers, ‘Glimmer’ and ‘Shibuya’ will feel entirely different and take people someplace new.”
Acoustics, which features new song “Predawn” as well as stripped down versions of “Glimmer” and “Shibuya,” arrives as the band prepares for a North American headlining tour, kicking off this Friday at Schuba’s in Chicago. The two week outing features openers Vasudeva and Triple Crown label mates, Holy Fawn. Covet join Periphery this fall (Sept. 9 to Oct. 13) on their North American outing.

Covet released their Triple Crown Records’ debut, Effloresce, in July of 2018. Gear Gods said upon the album’s release, “all three of these talented musicians form what is an incredibly musical, lush, and thoughtful sound,” while Brooklyn Vegan noted the band’s knack for writing “sugar sweet melodies.” Guitar World premiered the video for the band’s track “Glimmer”, while Revolver marked Halloween 2018 with the debut of the band’s video for “Howl”.
Miami, FL – Torche reveal a third track “Admission” (July 12, Relapse Records), debuting the album’s title track via BillboardHERE.
“This is a song where the music and the lyrics are a perfect match,” explains guitar player Jon Nunez in the accompanying article. “It’s as if they were meant to go together. What I was going through at the time really came through in the song, and the music I gave Steve definitely brought out some rather painful emotions for him [regarding] losing loved ones and the process you go through after. You could even hear a quiver in Steve’s voice, and it was like, ‘Wow, this is something we haven’t done before.’ Steve tends to be really secretive with his lyrics. He needed a little bit of a push, but I think deep down inside he wanted to get this off his chest.”
The band has given two previous previews of music from the 11-song album with streams of the songs “Slide” and “Times Missing”. The trio of tracks are available as instant downloads with digital pre-orders. Admission is available in various formats (CD/LP/CS/Digital) with several limited edition vinyl versions already sold out. More information can be found via Relapse’s webstore. Admission’s cover art was created by Richard Vergez, a Cuban-American visual artist, whose work has been shown at No Romance Galleries (TriBeCa), Urban Arts Society (Chicago) and Kids of Dada (London).
Torche released their fourth album, and Relapse Records’ debut, Restarter in 2015. The collection found the band on most year-end best of lists with Entertainment Weekly describing the album as “gloriously fuzzy, sludgy, hard-hitting” and calling the band members “four of loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders.”The Washington Post called Restarter “otherworldly” and the Chicago Tribune saying “Torche’s music connects muscle, songcraft and drive in a way that few bands of recent vintage can match.”

French deathcore heavyweights Betraying The Martyrs will return to American shores this summer for their first-ever headline tour of North America. The “Summer Rapture Tour 2019,” also featuring support from Entheos, Within Destruction, Sentinels and Defying Decay, will kick off on June 28 in Stanhope, N.J.
A Preview of What’s to Come On the “Summer Rapture Tour”
We are beyond excited to cover US soil on our first full US headlining tour,” says vocalist Aaron Matts. “To be able to play a full energetic set to an audience that has been with us since day one is an absolute honor for us! Along with a stacked line-up of sick bands, we’re all stoked to get on the road! Come to a show and lose yourselves with us all, see you all in the pit!”
The band recently also announced a new partnership with Chris Adler‘s management company, Kintsugi Management and is working on a new album. Betraying The Martyrs will play new songs from the upcoming album for the very first time on this tour.
“Kintsugi is proud to be working with Betraying The Martyrs,” Adler says. “I’m honestly excited to be working with a group of friends with a united vision. Betraying The Martyrs is doing something very special. It’s labeled metalcore because it’s easy to put every band in a box, but in this case, that is a mistake. They have taken time to study and have salvaged and fine-tuned all that I love in metal music. It’s an exciting time for the band. We believe in the guys and there’s an incredible new album soon to drop. The band continues to grow a dedicated, international fan base via their hard work, vision and brutally contagious music. The new Betraying The Martyrs album is going to change the game. I’m sincerely thrilled to be involved with a group of people that focus and deliver.”
Matts adds, “We are beyond excited to announce our collaboration with the legendary Chris Adler and Kintsugi Management. To be on board the same ship as Chris and his incredible team has breathed new life into what we do. Their backing support goes beyond anything we have known previously. It’s truly an honor. With our next release in the barrel and ready to be fired into the world, we could not be any more prepared for the road ahead. We announce our signature to Kintsugi with great pride.”
The Paris-based band’s last album, The Resilient, was released via Sumerian Records in 2017 and showcased a unique songwriting dynamic unrivalled within their genre.

Betraying The Martyrs burst on to the scene in a stunning 2011 debut, Breathe in Life, and made a huge impact throughout North America and Europe, touring relentlessly on such high-profile tours as RockStar Mayhem Fest and club tours alike.
The 2014 sophomore album, Phantom, and its ensuing tours seasoned Betraying The Martyrs into a venerable freight-train of aggression with blazing harmonies, captivating hooks and bombastic off-time precision. The album also opened the doors to an entirely new audience with the unlikely cover of Frozen’s “Let it Go.”
