Jonny Craig (Dance Gavin Dance) checks into rehab

A week after Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa singer Jonny Craig was found to have scammed a handful of people for a total of somewhere between $4000 and $8000, Craig has apparently checked himself into a North Hollywood, CA treatment facility. Rise Records owner Craig Ericson and Artery Foundation's Eric Rushing have provided Altpress with the following statement: "In regards to Jonny Craig; Jonny has checked himself into a professional detox treatment facility located in North Hollywood, CA. His addiction needed immediate attention and with the help from MusiCares, we were able to make it happen. Rise Records and Artery Management will reimburse all people who Jonny took advantage of financially. No one will be getting ripped off and we'd all like to issue a public apology to anyone who had been taken advantage of. Regarding live performances: the Emarosa/Chiodos tour will continue as planned with Tilian Pearson (former vocalist of Tides of Man) filling in for Jonny. All scheduled Dance Gavin Dance shows will happen as planned next month and beyond. Everyone from his team wishes Jonny the best in his recovery. We're all looking forward to the new and improved Jonny."
