This month, Dance Gavin Dance frontman, Tilian (Pearson), released two brand new singles, “Cocky” and “Hold On.” Today, Tilian is pleased to unveil the accompanying music video to “Hold On,” which explores two different father-son dynamics within a family. The song is off his upcoming third album, The Skeptic, out Friday, September 28th via Rise Records.
According to Tilian, “’Hold On’ is about mutually surrendering yourself to another person. Sometimes even when you are close to someone, you put up barriers of isolation and duplicity that inevitably lead to you having to lie to yourself. An honest relationship with even just one person can be extremely fulfilling.”
“The music video for ‘Hold On’ uses imagery of the relationship between a father and son, spanning thirty years. Moments of intense pleasure juxtaposed by the fear and shock of loss will hopefully produce the emotional satisfaction of a streamlined, three-minute classical tragedy,” he adds.
