Alkaline Trio Replace Dance Gavin Dance on Coheed and Cambria’s Headlining Tour
Two days after Coheed and Cambria announced they had made the decision to drop Dance Gavin Dance from their upcoming U.S. tour following singer Tillian Pearson's interim departure from the band amid sexual assault accusations, it has officially been revealed that Alkaline Trio will now take their place.
On social media, Alkaline Trio, who last released Is This Thing Cursed? in 2018, exclaimed, "So excited to announce that we will be joining this awesome band and our old friends on tour this summer!!"
The group will provide direct support for headliners Coheed and Cambria, whose new album Vaxis - Act II: A Window of the Waking Mind is set for a June 24 release on Roadrunner, and special guest Mothica will also be onboard for the run, which begins on July 12 in Miama, Florida and will conclude in Troutdale, Oregon on Aug. 17.

"After much internal conversation and consideration, we have decided to replace Dance Gavin Dance on the A Window of the Waking Mind tour," Coheed declared on June 7, adding, "We wish them healing and strength. We will be announcing a replacement in the coming days as we prepare for the release of Vaxis II and subsequent summer tour."
At the beginning of June, multiple women levied accusations of sexual assault against Pearson, who joined Dance Gavin Dance in 2012. The singer issued an apology to one Reddit user directly, who shared a 6,000-plus word story recollecting recent encounters from only a few weeks ago. Shortly after, the band announced Pearson was "stepping away" to seek professional help. Dance Gavin Dance also suffered the death of bassist Tim Feerick earlier this year as well.
