Zachary Garren, (ex-Dance Gavin Dance, Strawberry Girls), has just joined forces with Will Swan & Tim Feerick of Dance Gavin Dance, Matt Geise (ex-Lower Definition), and Loniel Robinson (ex-Of Machines) for a brand new project. They are currently finishing up some demos for an album set to be released sometime next year.

An anonymous tumblr page has posted a variety of photos, and stories, about Jonny Craig. The page states that Jonny has been kicked out of Dance Gavin Dance and is still heavily involved in drugs. Be warned: the pictures are probably not something you'd want on your work computer. As this breaks, a bunch of information, much of it quite disturbing, will probably start to pour out. We would like to urge everyone to try and have a little compassion, as this is going to get quite rough. Our thoughts are with all involved. If you or a loved one is suffering from substance abuse - please seek help from one of the many treatment centers around the country.
Indiestar is reporting that Jonny Craig has been released from prison “by order of the judge through California’s drug diversion program. Upon his release, Mr. Craig is court ordered to complete time in drug rehab."
