Release Date: January 24th, 2012

EXCLUSIVE: Kurt Travis speaks out about leaving DGD and his future!

A few weeks ago online music magazines across the Internet were all fanatically pumping out huge news about Sacramento’s Dance Gavin Dance reenlisting their original vocalist Jonny Craig (currently also in Emarosa). Fans thoughts and opinions were mixed, creating a flurry of opinions on this big move, especially with the series of member changes that took place for the few years previous to this news.

Now ex-vocalist Kurt Travis was slightly put in the backseat of this news, described in many sources as “leaving” the group with little to no more information after this, especially from the man himself. Avoiding too much presence on the Internet’s avenue of social networking sites and music news outlets, no word of Kurt left an unsettling and unconfirmed aura of what really went on with the whole member and band shifts. We here at DEAD PRESS! thought we’d try and get to the bottom of this, and get in touch with Kurt to display his side of the story, not only as an outlet for himself but also to inform fans.
