Seems like Dance Gavin Dance have themselves a replacement for Tilian Pearson sorted for the moment. Ex-Vocalist Kurt Travis has jumped back on board for a minute.

A little while back now, DGD announced that Tilian Pearson would be stepping away from the band after allegations of sexual misconduct. They also were stood down from their forthcoming tour with Coheed and Cambria. 

They are out on tour this July - and it seems like they will be utilising ex-vocalist Kurt Travis and their current guitarist Andrew Wells on vocals (presumably alongside the harsh vocals from Jon Mess). Filling in Wells' spot will be Veil Of Maya guitarist Marc Okubo.

Drummer Matt Mingus said that "We are very pleased to announce our exciting & intimate headlining tour, 'An Evening With Friends - last month, unfortunately, and not by our choice, we were made aware that we could not perform on the summer tour we had been looking forward to for the past year. We were lucky enough to get the support from our partners to help curate a last-minute headline tour hitting most of the cities we already planned on performing in. "It's yet another obstacle put in our way that we are willing and able to overcome. While change can sometimes be challenging to adapt to, we are optimistic and looking towards the future with our heads held high and a fantastic new album to celebrate. We look forward to seeing you this summer."
