Dance Gavin Dance and vocalist Tilian Pearson have had a rocky relationship in recent years. Dance Gavin Dance and Pearson split on a temporary basis in early 2022 due to allegations of sexual misconduct, though the band reunited with Pearson later that year.

Now two years later, Dance Gavin Dance has permanently split with Pearson. According to a statement from the band, Dance Gavin Dance attempted to reconcile their issues internally, but failed to do so. Pearson has not commented on the matter yet, and Dance Gavin Dance has not named a replacement for Pearson.

"Dance Gavin Dance has always attempted to reconcile situations internally. But, after much consideration, we have as a collective decided to say farewell to our long time member and friend, Tilian. We wish him luck, along with our support and respect for his future endeavors in music and life.

"We thank him for his years of friendship and contribution during his time in Dance Gavin Dance. As people grow and change, creative differences can arise and life paths and goals may no longer align.

"We want to thank you for your support over the past two decades. We are truly grateful that we can continue to play music as a career and we are excited to move forward with this new era for the band.

"Will, Matt, Jon, and Andrew"
