UTG PREMIERE: Tilian – “Future Friends”

While Dance Gavin Dance is busy headlining their ‘Acceptance Speech Tour,’ we’re pleased as punch to premiere a new happy tune from Tilian’s solo library. Enjoy “Future Friends” below, grab it on iTunes, catch Tilian on tour with DGD, and get excited for Pearson’s future solo …

Sianvar Won’t Be Touring For The Rest Of 2014

As you probably know by now, Sianvar consists of members of A Lot Like Birds, Dance Gavin Dance, Stolas and Hail The Sun. All of these bands have a lot of their own things going on most of the time. Because of that fact, Sianvar had to unfortunately announce the inevitable news that they would likely not be doing much of anything this year — especially touring. They just ended an extensive tour with A Lot Like Birds, and it appears as though that will be it for the rest of 2014. However, they have stated that …
