Dance Gavin Dance’s Tilian Pearson has been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID-19. As a result, the frontman will be missing the band’s upcoming shows.
The group issued the following statement:
“While all crew and performing artists on the Dance Gavin Dance ‘Afterburner Tour‘ are fully vaccinated, yesterday afternoon Tilian started to feel minor symptoms related to COVID-19, and subsequently tested positive. After isolating him to a comfortable location, additional tests were given to all their crew and members, who had no symptoms, and all were negative.
Tilian is already starting to feel better and we will continue to test our team regularly as a precaution.
In the meantime, all DGD shows are planned to continue with members of the tour filling in on various positions to maintain the proper sonic experience you would expect from a DGD show. Please send Tilian your best wishes to a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him back on the road very soon.”
