So 4 ex-DGD members are recording together. Kinda hilarious/ridiculous that there are enough ex-members of a band to create a whole new band out of the ashes

Five Minute Ride > Dance Gavin Dance. I would always bump into Kurt at "Rick's Dessert Diner" <--- the most badass dessert in California!

I also had an "Angelfire" page that listed "Five Minute Ride" when they were around, ha ha ha!

That explanation makes "the band" *WILL* look like a tool. He was the only constant that could kick everyone out and actually reading this makes me start to loose respect for them. They wanted to do a DBM tour? What about your newer fans? What is the point of regression if you are just going to appease a certain part of your fanbase? I have loved all of their efforts so far but I hope that either DBM2 fall apart o they break up right after. At this rate DGD will run itself into the ground.

On a more hopeful note, cannot wait to see Kurt's future projects. Very promising.

Hopefully you have no respect for Jonny already.

This situation is fucked. I'm the only one of my friends who is pissed off at all of this madness. They're all DBM fanboys, so I can't say I'm surprised. Kurt seems like a fucking great guy.

Kurt > Johnny
This interview surprised me. I thought Kurt was going to hate on DGD, but he was really mature about it. That just made me respect him even more.. Also, I love Happiness. Sucks he got kicked out. I'm stoked for his side project with Zach, Tim, and Dan though.

I figured respect was lost a long time ago. It's no surprise that the people behind the band *coughWillandMattcough* are the reason members are like a revolving door.

As far as the members of DGD there’s no bad water between us, although I do realise now that me being a part of the band was completely business, and not long lasting friendships. None of them have contacted me since I stepped out of the van when we got home after the Scream It Like You Mean It tour. When you spend so much time with certain people, you’d think that there was at least some friendship, but I’ve realised that it was only on the surface. It’s very sad because I love them all and wish the best for them, but I don’t think it’s mutual. I may be wrong. I hope I am.

Okay they are complete fucking douches if that is true. I would feel the same way... I would think a band would be rooted in friendship not business. I was never one to call "sellout" but it seems that that is what is happening.
