"Mothership" is the seventh full-length album by The American post-hardcore band DANCE GAVIN DANCE, released on October 7, 2016.
The album was recorded by the band at Interlace Audio Recording Studios in North Portland, Oregon over a two-month period between April and June 2016 with producer Kris Crummett. During the recording sessions for the album, the band sought out and collaborated with other musicians such as Andrew Michael Wells of EIDOLA, Aric Garcia of HAIL THE SUN, Martin Bianchini of SECRET BAND and former DANCE GAVIN DANCE guitarist Zachary Garren of STRAWBERRY GIRLS.
The album artwork for "Mothership" was created by Swedish illustrator and artist Mattias Adolfsson, who has previously created the album artwork for six of DANCE GAVIN DANCEs studio albums. The album cover depicts a "mothership" in the upper sector of the photo in the shape of an infinity sign whilst citizens praising its arrival on the ground below. Easter eggs are also illustrated in the album's artwork, including the death star-inspired space ship as seen on the band's 2008 self-titled studio album.
A European headlining tour is set to take place from November 3 to November 26, 2016 with special guest appearances from former members Jonny Craig and Kurt Travis.
