Dance Gavin Dance turn humans into screaming robots with creepy wires in ‘Midnight Crusade’ video

April 5, 2018

Sacramento post-hardcore talents Dance Gavin Dance had been teasing fans for weeks and guess what, they never cease to amuse us with quirky music videos. The band has just shared a clip for ‘Midnight Crusade’, and it’s yet another puzzler.

The song develops the band’s favorite theme – humans turning into machines. Except this time, we see people attacked with creepy wires, transforming them into hardcore-screaming robots. Give the controversial clip for ‘Midnight Crusade’ a look below:

It’s Dance Gavin Dance’s first single from the upcoming new album, Artificial Selection, announced last week. The band’s forthcoming eighth studio effort is due out June 8 on Rise Records, but preorders are already available at this location.

If you’re hoping to see the band live this spring, catch them on their spring North American tour with Underoath or rock at one of their summer headlining shows later this spring (see the tour list below) alongside I See Stars, ERRA, and Sianvar. You can also get a digital download of the new album, Artificial Selection, when you buy a ticket.
