Dance Gavin Dance - Betrayed By The Game (Official Music Video)

Sacramento post-hardcore outfit Dance Gavin Dance and San Diego prog rockers Chon have been quite busy in 2016. Back in October, Dance Gavin Dance released their seventh studio album Mothership on Rise Records, which gave the band their highest debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart at number 13. Sumerian Records act Chon have been touring the world with bands such as Periphery, Sikth, and Between The Buried And Me in support of their debut album Grow. Yesterday, both bands  announced plans to join forces for a winter trek across the United States.

The tour kicks off on Feb. 24 inside the El Rey Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and it will make stops in Kentucky (Mercury Ballroom on Mar. 1), New Jersey (Starland Ballroom on Mar. 4), and Memphis (New Daisy Theatre on Mar. 10) before concluding with a stop at the Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California on Mar. 19. Tickets for the trek will go on sale to the general public on Friday (Dec. 16), but VIP packages for both Dance Gavin Dance and Chon are on sale right now. Aside from band specific items, both VIP packages, which will both cost $50.00 a piece, include early entry, meet and greet, photo op, a poster, and a VIP lanyard. You can take a look at the entire tour routing below.
