Dance will be continuing the tour playing their Secret Band music. It is currently unknown if Jonny will
continue with Dance Gavin Dance after the tour or not.

Craig is such a piece of shit. If only it was possible to give his voice to someone else so he could kill himself.

Looks like he was actually kicked off by the Sumerian Records guy for being an asshole. This just makes the story even better.

Okay yeah, this guy is a douchebag. But DGD are almost as bad for welcoming him back into the band. Spoiler Alert dudes: this guy is a fuck-up.

If Kurt Travis is willing to rejoin your band, fucking accept him. And this time, don't kick him out after you guys finally get used to the members that are into your band for an old member who was a total piece of shit.

Fuck I hope Kurt Travis has a great career with the group he's in and never rejoins this band again. And I hope anyone in this band who was ever willing to welcome JC back into it has a terrible career. If this dude is so destined to have a successful solo career just let him do it. I can't believe the way these guys are willing to bounce back and forth over a fucked up man's vocal ability.
