Dance Gavin Dance recently announced vocalist Tilian Pearson would be stepping away from the band (for a currently-unknown period of time) after recent allegations of sexual misconduct, and the band was removed from their upcoming tour with Coheed & Cambria. Dance Gavin Dance has now announced an Evening With-style tour for this July featuring ex-vocalist Kurt Travis and current guitarist Andrew Wells handling vocal duties. Filling in Wells' spot will be Veil Of Maya guitarist Marc Okubo.
"We are very pleased to announce our exciting & intimate headlining tour, 'An Evening With Friends,'" said drummer Matt Mingus.
"Last month, unfortunately, and not by our choice, we were made aware that we could not perform on the summer tour we had been looking forward to for the past year. We were lucky enough to get the support from our partners to help curate a last-minute headline tour hitting most of the cities we already planned on performing in.
"It's yet another obstacle put in our way that we are willing and able to overcome. While change can sometimes be challenging to adapt to, we are optimistic and looking towards the future with our heads held high and a fantastic new album to celebrate. We look forward to seeing you this summer."
