Jonny Craig checks into detox

Posted by AP on 28/02/11

Emarosa/Dance Gavin Dance frontman Jonny Craig has checked himself into a detox facility in North Hollywood, CA, for drug addiction. The vocalist has recently been under pressure amid allegations of defrauding fans over the internet for computer hardware that never arrived.

Both Rise Records and the Artery Foundation have assumed financial responsibilities to repay those who have been ripped off by Craig. In light of the situation, former Tides Of Man vocalist Tilian Pearson has been brought onboard Emarosa as a temporary replacement for immediate touring commitments.

Below is the joint statement from Craig Ericson of Rise Records and Eric Rushing of the Artery Foundation regarding the matter:

“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.”
