“Altogether, “Tree City Sessions 2” is about as good as it gets for a pandemic-era streamed concert. The production values are high, the performance nearly threatens to jump from your screen, but most of all it gives a sense of place.
And that place is Sacramento, the “City of Trees” and the home of Dance Gavin Dance.” – Sacramento Bee
“Audio quality and imagery are absolutely incredible and definitely makes you feel like you’re at a Dance Gavin Dance show.” – Concert Crap
 “Dance Gavin Dance just played one of the most memorable shows of their career and to do it in their hometown just adds to the excitement of what a huge accomplishment this is for them.” – Dread Music Review

Monday, December 28th, 2020 (Los Angeles) – Sacramento chart topping, genre defying quintet, Dance Gavin Dance gave fans the ultimate Holiday surprise on Friday (December 25th) with the digital release of “Tree City Sessions 2” recorded at their hugely successful global streaming event of the same name that aired on December 19th and ran on demand for the following 3 days. The “Tree City Sessions 2” album is available digitally now via Rise Records with vinyl pre-orders also available now here.
The “Tree City Sessions 2” streaming event was produced in association with Danny Wimmer Presents and saw the band end an enormously successful year with a bang. Performing a fan-voted setlist featuring deep cuts that had never been played live before, the band and their team shut down iconic home town landmark, the Sacramento Tower Bridge for a mind-blowing, in the round performance, featuring an incredible light show, multi-cam and drone footage all backdropped by the beautiful Sacramento skyline.
Speaking on the epic success of the “Tree City Sessions 2” live stream, event producer, Danny Wimmer shares
“The “Tree City Sessions 2” stream was an exciting project for DWP to work on from start to finish.
“We were very pleased with how well it performed—from the next level production of the visuals and sound, to becoming one of the top ticket-selling streams in their genre for this year and the end result of the overwhelming, positive responses from the fans. It was a win-win for everyone involved.”

About Dance Gavin Dance
Rejecting tired formulas at every step, Dance Gavin Dance merge progressive rock and post-hardcore with thick groove, brilliantly combining experimental music with hooks and a warped sense of humor. The group has amassed over  1 billion global streams, and 1 million album equivalent units sold across their catalog in the US alone. With hundreds of thousands of rabid fans engaged with Dance Gavin Dance on socials and their very own festival event, Swanfest, which sold out its inaugural edition in 2019 and is slated to return, once it is safe to do so, in 2021, it all amounts to a full force band facing a mainstream that has overlooked them for too long.
Dance Gavin Dance released their ninth studio album, Afterburner, earlier this year which has already clocked up 79 million streams since release and topped a multitude of charts on two separate occasions, once with it’s digital release hitting #1 across the Current Albums, Alternative, Billboard Top Albums, Digital, Current Digital Albums, Rock, Heavy Rock and Current Independent Albums charts and #14 on the Billboard Top 200 and again when the physical version was released several months later due to the pandemic, when it hit #1 across Vinyl, Internet, Alternative, Rock, Hard Music, Independent Current Albums, #3 Top Current and Billboard Top Albums and #47 on the Billboard 200 charts.
In the heady tradition of Frank Zappa and Nirvana – people who made serious art without ever seeming self-serious – Dance Gavin Dance is a band that does what they want, how they want, confident that the audience will keep up. “Tree City Sessions 2” is another in a long line of wildly creative, boundary pushing endeavors by one of modern music’s most brilliant and unique musical forces.
