Dance Gavin Dance, by all accounts, shouldn’t be here. They’ve changed their lead vocalist four separate times, and now have more former members than current members in their band.

Album Review: Of Mice & Men – Restoring Force

Like the controversy surrounding frontman Austin Carlile’s temporary exit from the band to have open-heart surgery that lead to the band replacing him completely with...
