Dance Gavin Dance Will No Longer Be Appearing On Coheed And Cambria’s Summer Tour


Prog rockers Coheed And Cambria have announced that Dance Gavin Dance will be replaced as direct support on their forthcoming summer tour with Mothica opening. The decision follows Dance Gavin Dance vocalist Tilian Pearson stepping down from the band in a bid to seek professional help after facing allegations of sexual misconduct. You can read more on that here.

In a statement shared on social media tonight (June 07th), Coheed And Cambria stated:

“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 issued a statement of their own today, which reads:

“We worked very hard on this album 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.

With Love,
Dance Gavin Dance
