Altpress is reporting that Emarosa and Dance Gavin Dance vocalist Jonny Craig has checked himself into a North Hollywood detox facility to receive treatment for drug addiction. Rise Records and Artery Foundation Artist Management have assumed financial responsibility for the internet fraud Craig committed during the past year. Former Tides Of Man vocalist Tilian Pearson will fill in for Craig on Emarosa’s current tour with Chiodos. All Dance Gavin Dance performances scheduled beginning next month will go on as planned.
Craig Ericson of Rise Records and Eric Rushing of the Artery Foundation said:
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.
