Hell yea Kurt doing vocals again! Im so sick of hearing about Jonny fucking Craig
Kurt is doing double vocal duties?
Digging: The Brave Little Abacus - Masked Dancers
holy hell this is gonna be sick. kurt ding vox again, and matt geise is good as hell too. too bad lower definition isn't playing too
^ best dig
ah yeah lower definition would be an awesome addition to this tour
songs from all their albums sounds really good, just might go to see them
Needs a reality tv show.
'The Importance Of Cocaine' keeping Johnny Craig out of DGD.
Digging: Ritual Mess - Vile Art
Hearing songs from every album is gonna be awesome, and the fact the Matt Geise from Lower Definition is doing vocals too is a plus
hhah Spec, it'd be a fucking hilarious show, but bad because jonny will probably die from overdose or some shit
Should trade his pretty voice with someone more deserving.
yeah his skillz got to his head and he fucked up majorly, i doubt he'll ever reignite his career and
he certainly doesn't deserve to have fans anymore
Who wants to place bets on Jonny Craig overdosing this year?
Jonny's doing smack again. Good for him.
old news bro
band has always sucked
Digging: Spoon - They Want My Soul
oh shit he's using dope now, bad effing news man. Took the lives of 3 of my friends from high school.
and who calls heroin dope? are you 70?
this is great news!
oh man he's sick
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
Kurt was there when they played in Richmond a couple years ago and he did great. Fuck Jonny.
too bad these fucks aren't leaving the west...
seriously fuck jc. good for this band.
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
Digging: The Contortionist - Language
What a bunch of tools, after all this bullshit they're going to go back to the singer that they left for the sideshow shit bag who they should've known would keep embarrassing himself and the band with his antics?
i love this band, i love jonny craig, kurt travis is okay too, idgaf about craig's drama, idgaf if he doesn't perform with them, idgaf if he overdoses, idgaf if you dgaf. i'm gonna go see dance gavin dance and tell them to play ghostship 4 after every song.
I'll go for Kurt. Happiness is MY SHIT.
too much jonny drama.. all this made me think about:
RIP lower d
loljonnycraig. that boy is just one big drama.
I just hate Jonny right now, I saw those pictures around tumblr. Kurt will really do good here.
matt geise !!!
LowerD should get back out on tour again...plus do some more records. They are so talented...
Happiness was by and far their best album, hopefully he fuckin' stays.
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!
I also really wish Lower d would put out another album or two. Love them.
YES!! Finally they drop dead weight and move forward! The part about Kurt Travis touring with them is some great news also. It's what I'd been hoping for. I'm also excited for Matt Geise. Let's go DGD.
Digging: FKA twigs - LP1
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.
He sick with a very bad case of Douchebag.
Jonny Craig is fucking sick. So rock and roll.
They're better without him
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.
I hope they play Happiness on this tour. I fucking love that song. And that album is my favorite DGD.
"We will be doing something that we've never done before, and thats preforming songs from all 4 full-lengths."
Is the dude doing opiates?
Heroin (diacetylmorphine or morphine diacetate (INN)), also known as diamorphine (BAN), is an opioid analgesic synthesized from morphine, a derivative of the opium poppy.
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.

Lower Definition isnt a band anymore dude
I hope Jonny Craig overdoses. Self titled album>every other DGD release
Kurt is so much better tbh
better at what?
cuz if so
the dgd with kurt is just the best shit they've ever done niggaaaaa
This is going to be interesting
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.
kurt can't sing for shit live. i'm definitely a jonny fan way more but tbh as long as mess and swan are both on board i'll be listening.
MATT GEISE, OHEMGEE. sucks lower d isn't touring
