Follow-up: Statement from Dance Gavin Dance

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/08/12)
Dance Gavin Dance have posted an official statement about the future of the band, and tour, after the cluster-fuck of last night.
Message from the BandAs some of you have heard today, Jonny Craig will not be doing the upcoming tour with Dance Gavin Dance. Jonny is very sick right now, and needs to do what he can to get better. Being on the road is no place for someone in his position right now. He needs to focus on fixing himself. He has NOT been kicked out of Dance Gavin Dance, but we cannot tour with him in the current state he is in. We still want to continue being productive and playing music that we have so much passion for, which is why we decided to continue with the tour without Jonny. We love Jonny and we hope that Jonny can do what he can to get better, because we have done everything that we can to try to get him clean.

For this upcoming tour with A lot Like Birds, we will be joined by Kurt Travis and Matt Geise to fill in on vocals. We will be doing something that we've never done before, and thats preforming songs from all 4 full-lengths. For the time being, keep your eyes peeled and your ears piqued for new Secret Band music! See you all out on the road and make sure to come up and say hi to us at the merch table!

Wow, I am not really a DGD fan, but I have taken notice of all I have heard about Kurt Travis. Everything that's written about him make him seem like a far more stable bandmate/person in general. Nothing against Jonny, he obviously has a serious problem.

"Well we never kicked him out. That was absolute punk speculative journalism. We've been trying to help him get help but he's not been very responsive to us. And now his legal troubles may keep him from entering the u.s. Ever again. So we have no choice but to soldier on without him and hope he gets help in this down time"

Edited just for you. Actual opinion is below:

Isn't he still due for prison? Why wouldn't they kick him out?

Just kick the guy out and bring in Matt Geise as the permanent singer. Keeping Jonny in the band is only going to destroy it.

The guy's an asshole, but he is definitely sick.
