Downtown Battle Mountain II is the fourth studio album by American post-hardcore band Dance Gavin Dance, released on March 8, 2011 through Rise Records. The album is not a direct continuation of the band's debut album Downtown Battle Mountain, but features the same line-up that recorded the first album (except for Sean O'Sullivan) as original members Jonny Craig, Jonathan Mess and Eric Lodge all rejoined the band in 2010. It was produced by Kris Crummett, who produced the band's previous albums. The Hot Topic exclusive edition includes 2 bonus tracks ("People You Knew" and "Perfect"), as well as the whole Downtown Battle Mountain album as a bonus disc. The album was leaked on March 3, 2011, approximately one week before its release. To combat the leak, Rise Records uploaded the album in its entirety to YouTube. The album debuted at number 82 on the Billboard 200 while the Hot Topic deluxe version debuted at 190 on the Billboard 200 in the same week. This was the third and final release by the band to feature clean vocalist Jonny Craig upon his rejoining the band in 2010. He later parted ways with them in August of 2012.
