You can read a new interview here with Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Will Swan on Jonny Craig’s arrest below.
We tried multiple times to get him to agree to rehab. After Warped Tour we gave him the option of going to a rehab facility for at least a month at no cost to him. He wouldn’t go. We didn’t see much of him for a few weeks and when we did, he seemed to be getting worse and worse. After our show at Sacramentio State last week, we realized he wasn’t going to get off the drugs while being in DGD. We didn’t want to completely cut him off though, so we decided to go on hiatus until he could clean himself up.
If there is a future for Dance Gavin Dance, how does Jonny Craig fit into it?
We’re not replacing him. He’s always got a place in DGD.
