The band are currently on tour with Underoath, and were set to play Milwaukee’s The Rave yesterday. They were still able to perform the show as scheduled without Tilian.

“Unfortunately Tilian was unable to perform tonight as a precautionary measure due to a concussion he suffered earlier,” DGD posted to their social pages.

“This was recommended by a dr that he saw after still having symptoms. We’ll update when we have further info. The rest of DGD will perform tonight as scheduled.”

Dance Gavin Dance have yet to update on Tilian’s condition, nor have they specified how the singer received the concussion in the first place. They are scheduled to perform at The Agora in Cleveland, OH tonight.
