Kurt Travis & Matt Geise To Cover Dance Gavin...

Posted by: Jack Appleby (02/08/12)
We have confirmed with a source close to the band that Kurt Travis (ex-DGD, A Lot Like Birds) and Matt Geise (Lower Definition) will cover lead vocals on Dance Gavin Dance's upcoming tour with A Lot Like Birds, Decoder, and Just Like Vinyl.

Update: Dance Gavin Dance have confirmed Kurt and Geise will sing this tour, but Jonny Craig has not been kicked out of the band.

Honestly, I'm not sure he's interested. He really enjoys A Lot Like Birds, and I think it's some of his best work.

I hope he stays with A Lot Like Birds. I've started to like them more than DGD recently.

I'm sure you're right. I just still think it's shitty that it happened to him. He was always a better dude than Johnny.

I know fans are really into DGD - and maybe this isn't possible due to the fan base built up. But part of me just thinks the band needs to retire the name, start something fresh, and go from there. Shed the stigmata that this band name will always carry with it.

I really hope they're just doing this to appease fans and fulfill tour obligations (since they've already screwed over ALLB once).

I'd like them to pursue Secret Band full-time (which is all members of DGD, minus Jonny). The band seems to enjoy working on that project immensely, and it's drama free. Trying to continue DGD just seems ridiculous at this point.
