Don’t Panic have dropped their new single “Conquer Divide” on all streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. The track is part of their upcoming new album entitled ‘42’, which is now set for an August 26th release. The album will also include their comeback single “Time Machine” which was released alongside a music video in late April.
The Arizona based group has been at it for over a decade, and after a brief hiatus, returned to the studio to write/record new music that will be included on ‘42’. Vocalist Dylan Rowe and company are excited to once again be making music and were brought back together in 2021 when inspiration and the perfectly imperfect timing struck (nothing like some COVID downtime). With a similar energy to “Time Machine”, “Conquer Divide” leans into a mix of infectious guitar rock with tasteful backing keys to create an approachable, but heavy sound that perfectly lends itself to Rowe’s powerful vocal melodies. In support of the effort, the band is currently booking tour dates that include an August 26th album release show in Phoenix and 28th show in Los Angeles.
“Conquer Divide is a personal protest, it’s the enormity of chaos, and feeling powerless to change it,” says Don’t Panic singer Dylan Rowe. “It’s about compassion, understanding, forgiveness, anger, hope, all of the vulnerable feelings critical to realize change.”
Speaking further on the album - “I feel like we revisited our roots here with this one, which makes my heart really happy. Our first EP was very tongue-in-cheek, Conquer Divide and the ‘42’ LP definitely encapsulates that sarcastic sentiment, something we were known for in the very beginning. We [Don’t Panic] are, undoubtedly, the “if I’m not laughing, I’m crying” kind of people, we try our best to balance our stinging satire with genuine optimism.”

Since forming in 2012, the multi-dimensional quartet has carefully picked out influences ranging from progressive rock, indie and flavors from the mainstream to create a sound that is rounded out by Dylan Rowe’s soaring, yet emotionally dynamic vocals. Don’t Panic released their two EPs ‘DOS Robot Circus’ (2014) and ‘The Sleepy EP’ (2015) and will release their new album ‘42’ on August 26. The band embraces a unique mix of rock and experimental tendencies, and is composed of members Dylan Rowe (Vocals), Jeffrey Fred Robens Jr. (Guitar), and Ryan Obermeit (Bass).
