Dance Gavin Dance goes on hiatus

Due to the ongoing personal problems of singer Jonny Craig, Dance Gavin Dance has gone on hiatus. Yesterday Alternative Press spoke with guitarist Will Swan, who summed up the situation this way: "We tried multiple times to get him to agree to rehab. After Warped Tour we gave him the option of going to a rehab facility for at least a month at no cost to him. He wouldn't go. We didn't see much of him for a few weeks and when we did, he seemed to be getting worse and worse. After our show at Sacramentio State last week, we realized he wasn't going to get off the drugs while being in DGD. We didn't want to completely cut him off though, so we decided to go on hiatus until he could clean himself up." Swan added, "I hope the best for Jonny. Hardcore drug addiction is no joke or reason for ridicule. If Jonny can put this problem behind him, we'd be glad to come back stronger than ever. Until that happens DGD will stay on hiatus." You can read AP's entire interview with Swan here.
