Dance Gavin Dance have been dropped from their upcoming tour with Coheed And Cambria and Mothica. This news comes after singer Tilian Pearson stepped away from the band following sexual assault allegations.
Coheed And Cambria commented:
“After much internal conversation, we have decided to replace Dance Gavin Dance on the ‘A Window Of The Waking Mind Tour‘.
We wish them healing and strength.
We will be announcing a replacement in the coming days as we prepare for the release of ‘Vaxis II’ and subsequent summer tour.”
Dance Gavin Dance also issued a statement:
“We worked very hard on this album [‘Jackpot Juicer’] and are incredibly proud of it. We will start promoting its release again this week. There will be videos, promo photos, and upcoming magazine features with both Tim and Tilian. You have a choice in what you support, purchase and listen to. We hope that you still choose to support us.
Dance Gavin Dance is a strong, resilient group—and though these past few months have broken our hearts and frustrated us to no end, we will continue with the album release, with the touring, and then after that, go work on the next one. We do it for the fans who appreciate it and because it’s what we are all passionate about.
