Keep your eyes peeled!

Dance Gavin Dance have debuted the third single from new album 'Mothership' and the new installment to the 'Robot With Human Hair' series.

For those that don't know, 'The Robot With Human Hair' story began with the band's breakthrough EP 'Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean' and has run through the band's six albums since, most notably in in 2008's self-titled effort, 'Downtown Battle Mountain II' and 2013's 'Acceptance Speech', which included the track 'Death Of The Robot With Human Hair'.

'Young Robot', taken from 'Mothership' (out October 7) is a prequel to the entire storyline and will answer some questions for the die hard fans who have managed to keep up with the whole thing.

Check out the animated video below, and keep your eyes open for all the Dance Gavin Dance references included.
