Or do a live album with guest spots? Tilian and Kurt sang Uneasy Hearts and Tree Village together in Chicago once. Matt Geise recently got on stage to do Rock Solid with Tilian and the rest of the...

They'd probably be like, naaaaah, lol

Forgive the long essay, but I feel a bit inspired today...

In terms of being close to them, I'd just a few of the guys in the band have been insanely cool to...

Haha, Zac would probably get a kick out of you saying that and appreciate it.

Well worth it. My opinion might get attacked on here, but I look at it like this...

Incubus and Deftones by themselves are deservingly worth at least $40 each, though I personally would pay more to...

Lemon and Times New Roman are the most streamed/downloaded from the album so there's a good argument for them being the "best".

I'm looking for melodies, particularly in the vocals and guitars, that's what drew me in the most to Thursday. Dynamics are big for me too, I like soft and pretty parts transitioning into...

I've only ever LOVED Full Collapse and War All The Time. I lost interest in the band after those records, but I'm willing to give their other records a chance.

What distinctive qualities should I...

It would be a bit too predictable for them to just number their sequels.

If you have the Jiggler and the Cuddler, which character could be next in the series? I find that more intriguing than just...

Why would they laugh "at" me? Maybe behind my back? In person, they're really nice guys, especially Matt and Tim.

I'll double check with the band at the show I'm going to if The Cuddler was meant to be a reference to The Jiggler. Seems pretty obvious to me though due to the wordplay.

Nope, it's to Swisher, DGD confirmed it in this recent interview.

Also, Tilian posted this about the lyrics to Akward:

There are two sequels...

The Cuddler: sequel to The Jiggler
Death of a Strawberry: basically Strawberry Swisher Pt. 4

That's one of the very few things I didn't like on the album. Will doesn't have a bad singing voice and he sounds great on On The Run.

"Call and response" style back up vocals rarely ever feel right...

Best live versions for Blue Dream and Purple Reign, the band is on fire for both.

Thug City is a fun one! I thought the "Dance Gavin Dance baby, Downtown Battle Mountain twoooooo" gives it personality. Jon has some cool wordplay and Jonny's performance was pretty on point as well.

Which songs on dbm2?

The only song on dbm2 I usually skip over is Need Money. Every other song has a special quality to it, but I might be alone here.

Most of the time, I listen to the record from...

Came up with my Ultimate DGD Greatest Hits Playlist. It has 5 Jonny songs, 5 Kurt songs, and 5 Tilian songs. I tried not to include any more than 15 songs because once you throw in too many songs,...

I'd go with Acceptance Speech next because it features most of the lineup that's on Instant Gratification except for Josh Benton.

Either way, here's a DGD Greatest Hits playlist I just compiled, all...

You could ask the guys from Slaves. They could probably give you a more detailed account.

Add me to the minority!

It took me years to appreciate There Are Rules. It might have been a bit ahead of it's time. You listen to it now and it's very relevant among the current indie rock...

What defines passion and emotion for you?

It's entirely possible for the songs to have had as much or more passion and emotion from the band than any other record of theirs. That's something that...
