Last week, Alternative Press unveiled Dance Gavin Dance as our May cover stars. Now we're bringing you more exciting news.

AP is offering fans a new exclusive cassette variant of the album, available in diamond and limited to 750 copies. The cassette is part of a special bundle with the physical magazine, and AP is the only place in the U.S. where you can get one. Grab a copy at the AP Store while supplies last.

In the cover story — the first time the band have spoken about the loss of bassist Tim Feerick and their new album Jackpot Juicer — Dance Gavin Dance honor the memory of their friend and bandmate and explore the creative process behind their latest record.

Brand-new studio images of the band, as well as live photos from this year's Swanfest, permeate the pages of our May issue. Check it all out here.

Also in Issue #406:

  • Coheed And Cambria: Since their 2002 debut album, Coheed And Cambria have built upon the conceptual world of The Amory Wars, a labor of love that requires immense attention to detail and imagination. With 10th album Vaxis II: A Window Of The Waking Mind fast approaching, frontman Claudio Sanchez dives deep into the band’s extensive history.
  • Post Animal: With their third album, Love Gibberish, Post Animal are returning to their roots in more ways than one. In the conversation, the five-piece reflect on reconnecting at Jake Hirshland’s family farm to make their most captivating record yet.
  • Halestorm: Can you believe Halestorm have been a band for 25 years?

  • Silverstein: While the world experienced devastating lockdowns, Silverstein were right along with them. Naturally, the band harnessed their collective frustrations and turned them into art. The resulting album, Misery Made Me, is their most transparent and experimental work to date.
