Jonny Craig Officially Kicked Out Of Dance Gavin Dance

Jonny Craig has been in and out of more bands than most people can keep track of. Click here to read the bands official statement regarding his departure from Dance Gavin Dance.

Jonny Craig has been in and out of so many bands you’d be forgiven for not knowing where he stands. There was a huge amount of speculation from Jonny’s twitter posts last night about his departure from Dance Gavin Dance and possibility of him rejoining Emarosa.

Dance Gavin Dance have released an official statement regarding Jonny’s departure. They said:

“When Jonny rejoined Dgd, we were about to call it quits. Tired of touring and being away from home for 8 months of the year, we wanted to shake things up. We thought it’d be fun to do a dbm sequel with Jonny and go out on that. We recorded dbm2 and felt it would be a disservice to our fans not to let them hear the new record live. We did a tour and felt rejuvenated but Jonny wasn’t in a good place.After trying to convince him into getting help over warped tour, we canceled a headliner in November/December 2011 and told him we wouldn’t tour until he sought out real help for his addiction. We got our good friend Matt Geise to fill in for a short run we did earlier this year while Jonny was in rehab. He was released and wanted to be out on the road immediately. We weren’t sure how things would go so we only booked a small portion of the all stars tour to see if Jonny could still function as our lead singer. After a week and a half things were not going well. Everything came to a head when Jonny was publicly scolded by the owner of sumerian records for multiple offenses. It was then that we realized that our time with Jonny had reached its end. We wish Jonny the best In his future endeavors but he will no longer be a part of DGD. We however will continue playing and writing music because it’s what we love doing.”
 
No official statement has been released regarding the replacement frontman for the band. Rumours are arife that Tilian Pearson, the former frontman of Saosin and Tides Of Man will take the open spot. Keep your eyes open for more information.
