Amid various allegations of defrauding fans over the internet for computer hardware that never arrived, Emarosa/Dance Gavin Dance frontman Jonny Craig has checked himself into a detox facility in North Hollywood, CA for drug addiction.
Both Rise Records and Artery Foundation Artist Management have assumed financial responsibilities to repay those who were ripped off by Craig. In light of the situation, former Tides Of Man vocalist Tilian Pearson has been brought onboard to fill in for Craig on Emarosa‘s tour with Chiodos.
For now, a joint statement from Craig Ericson of Rise Records and Eric Rushing of the Artery Foundation was issued to Altpress.com and can be read below:
“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.”
