Dance Gavin Dance tour
2012-02-09 by fund it | 61 Comments

Dance Gavin Dance have announced on twitter that they are heading out on tour with A Lot Like Birds without Jonny Craig.

"As 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!"


The band canceled their last tour after Craig had been arrested on drug-related charges.

dumbest bullshit i've heard in a while
they need to stop trying to back him up and find someone else permanently
seeing as how their best album was with someone who was not jonny craig, i think they'll be fine

Lol, Kurt's actually going to do vocals for them? Why? They fucked him right over. Oh well, here's hoping Jonny get's his act together at some point. His vocals are pretty damn great, wouldn't want them to go to waste.

Tour sounds like it'll be a lot of fun, wish I could go, but alas, I can't swim across the ocean.

Just talked with Kurt about this briefly at the A Lot Like Birds concert in Atlanta; he pretty much told me that Jonny isn't able to sing for them, so they're paying him to join them for the show. DGD are just in a mess these days, it seems

Sadly, I really don't think Jonny Craig will be able to kick the addiction just like that.

On second note, I'm an inch away from considering Hapiness better than Dowtown Batlle Mountain, I just love Kurt's vocals and the general flow of sound in that album.

Kurt Travis, you're a really good influence!

Though Jonny is a douche for doing what he does, I hope he gets better. I saw the vid where he's strung out on the street and it's sad.

Gooood news. Hopefully Jonny kicks his addiction but with his reputation he'll have a hard time finding work if he does. but the last thing he needs to do is more drugs.

Heroin (diacetylmorphine or morphine diacetate (INN)), also known as diamorphine (BAN), is an opioid analgesic synthesized from morphine, a derivative of the opium poppy.

MalleusMaleficarum

An opioid is a psychoactive chemical that works by binding to opioid receptors, which are found principally in the central and peripheral nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. The receptors in these organ systems mediate both the beneficial effects and the side effects of opioids.

The withdrawal syndrome from heroin (the so-called cold turkey) may begin within 6 to 24 hours of discontinuation of the drug; however, this time frame can fluctuate with the degree of tolerance as well as the amount of the last consumed dose. Symptoms may include: sweating, malaise, anxiety, depression, akathisia, priapism, extra sensitivity of the genitals in females, general feeling of heaviness, cramp-like pains in the limbs, excessive yawning or sneezing, tears, rhinorrhea, sleep difficulties (insomnia), cold sweats, chills, severe muscle and bone aches; nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, and fever.

What pisses me off is as soon as they play songs from all their albums Jonny is fucking up. It would have been awesome to have jonny an kurt switch up for songs they did since jonny lied an never played ant songs from deathstar or happiness. Kurt doing all the songs AND playing in A Lot Like Birds before will not end well live because we all know kurt can't sound good anymore 5 songs in.

I hope Matt from Lower D can help an pull it off. Lower D needs to make a new album already their ep was nice.

I certainly do not agree, as my favorite DGD releases are WiSiRO and DBM. I'm not a fan of Kurt really at all, though there were a couple cool songs written after Jonnys departure i guess

Let Jonny fuck himself over and bring DGD + ALLB together for another Isles & Glaciers-esque supergroup. Except better.

I love Jonny's voice, but I sincerely doubt he's gonna be picking himself back up, ever.

Love their music, hate their drama. Despite Jonny Craigs problem, he's great, and despite him not being there, I'm still excited for this.
