Dance Gavin Dance - Travis opens up


For all of you that haven't heard Dance Gavin Dance announced the departure of Kurt Travis who (I think) filled Jonny Craig's shoes very well. I thought that DGD had finally found their sound with Happiness, it had a sound so different from their other albums...but oddly enough it sounded like the sound DGD had been searching for. I can say I was a little frustrated when I heard about this. Mainly because Kurt is a talented singer, but also because DGD is infamous for having all of these line-up changes.

Kurt Travis recently opened up to DeadPress in a interview stating
Kurt: I definitely was never going to quit, so yeah, I got kicked out. The band told me that they were going to break up because they weren’t happy with it, but before they did they were going do a tour with Jonny and just do ‘Downtown Battle Mountain’ songs. Things didn’t really happen the way they told me it seems. Oh well.
Although I am looking forward to the Downtown Battle Mountain II album with the original DGD lineup, I feel empathetic for Kurt.  It is said he is starting a new project with other ex-DGD members. Hopefully this project doesn't have yearly line-up changes...
