Dance Gavin Dance have unleashed the second single from their forthcoming album Afterburner. Titled "Lyrics Lie," the song brings a surprising, yet very welcome element to the band's ninth installment.

While the record's first single "Prisoner" also features screams from Tilian Pearson, his latest performance truly shows just how versatile of a vocalist he can be. Reminiscent of the work from his time with Tides of Man, his band before replacing Jonny Craig as DGD's clean vocalist in 2012, Pearson's screams allow for complementary vocal textures to be shared between him and the band's rough vocalist, Jon Mess.

Additionally, the new song is accompanied by a time-lapsed video of the album artwork for Afterburner being transformed into a hand-painted mural in Sacramento, CA.

Dance Gavin Dance will release Afterburner on April 24 via Rise Records. You can preorder it here.

Dance Gavin Dance, "Lyrics Lie" Lyrics, via Genius

I need to take some time, I focus on my brand
Learn to love myself for who I am
Find my destiny written in sand
And let it all go to my head

See I feel my slit get wrist tight
Written on my mitten
Feeling angry go go night night
Me go feed the pigeons
Well some of you guys asked about
How I fit this in my mouth
Well there's link below my pout
Entrepreneurs rule, yeah!

It was real real nice to meet you
Hope you learned what I had to teach you
Got my chips stacked up to beat you, beat you
If the world doesn’t defeat you
If the mob doesn’t delete you
Nobody even really needs you
Anyway

Remember when we felt alive?
No, I dont think so!
Remember when we almost died?
That never happened!
Remember when you tried to kiss her
But she was gay and liked your sister?
I don't remember at all, I guess sometimes lyrics lie!

Read some Plato, Faulkner, read some Rand
Photos on Mt. Fuji in Japan
Went to Paris, Rome, and Kyrgyzstan
And let it all go to my head
Now I'm all cultured and educated
Quite qualified to be the one that made it
I've got what it takes to inspire you

Well some of you guys asked about
How I fit this in my mouth
Well there's link below my pout
Entrepreneurs rule, yeah!

It was real real nice to meet you
Hope you learned what I had to teach you
Got my chips stacked up to beat you, beat you
If the world doesn’t defeat you
If the mob doesn’t delete you
Nobody even really needs you
Anyway

Remember when we felt alive?
No, I don't think so!
Remember when we almost died?
That never happened!
Remember when you tried to kiss her
But she was gay and liked your sister?
I don't remember at all, I guess sometimes lyrics lie!

Sorry, didn't mean to flex
Just sit back down and learn from the best
I was born with a silver spoon
Feeding me pure fortitude
Confidence and stamina
I'm focused like a camera
I am, I'm a goddamn animal
Oh, everything comes natural

It was real real nice to meet you
Hope you learned what I had to teach you
Got my chips stacked up to beat you, beat you
If the world doesn’t defeat you
If the mob doesn’t delete you
Nobody even really needs you
Anyway
