# Dance Gavin Dance Parts Ways With Lead Singer Tilian Pearson Again

The post-hardcore band [Dance Gavin Dance]( announced on Monday it has parted ways once again with lead singer [Tilian Pearson]( after his 12-year run in the band, and the group will move forward without him.

Pearson has been the clean vocalist for the band since 2012, following Jonny Craig’s second departure from the group. Together, Pearson and Dance Gavin Dance have released six albums: “Acceptance Speech,” “Instant Gratification,” “Mothership,” “Artificial Selection,” “Afterburner” and “Jackpot Juicer.”

Dance Gavin Dance released a statement on Instagram from the rest of the band’s members — Jon Mess, Will Swan, Matt Mingus, and Andrew Wells — that they collectively decided to say farewell to Pearson due to creative differences and wished him luck in his future endeavors.

“We thank him for his years of friendship and contribution during his time in Dance Gavin Dance. As people grow and change, creative differences can arise, and life paths and goals may no longer align.”

Pearson also released a statement on Instagram stating that even though his time in the band is over, he will continue to release music and is working on his solo project, “Tilian.” His last solo album was “Factory Reset” in 2021.

“Now it’s time for a new chapter. I will be focusing on making new music on a different canvas. I’m currently in the studio perfecting a new Tilian album and will be playing live shows to support it later this year.”

Pearson previously stepped away from Dance Gavin Dance due to sexual misconduct allegations and substance abuse problems in June 2022. After receiving treatment, he was welcomed back in November 2022.

Dance Gavin Dance most recently finished touring the “Jackpot Juicer” album in November 2023. Their last single with Pearson was “War Machine,” which was released in October 2023.
