props to the band for doing it like this. shame though, he was the only reason I could kinda get into this band. Thought his vocals were actually pretty unique. Im kinda surprised they didnt mention anything about him possibly coming back at some point.

It actually bums me out they never mentioned his return.

I strongly disagree with your evaluation of who DGD fans prefer at lead. There is a reason why DGD's third album bombed (and the group dismissed Travis then after) and the fourth album was a success. Although Craig does seem dispassionate at times (particularly on DTBM2), you can't possibly stand by that statement when listening to the first album and the EP. Lyrically, yes, Craig blows. But Travis isn't that much better. Consider this,


Not exactly introspective, wouldn't you agree?

You can have the last word, because as you said, this isn't the place for this debate.
Agree to disagree then... though personally, I don't see how you can listen to those albums and think DBM is best, especially if you work on a music site. It may have been more successful (an artist's debut usually does become their most popular) but popular opinion from people who actually listen is that the next two albums were infinitely better. And those aren't the lyrics to judge Kurt by... it's a bit like judging Nas by "Oochie Wally" or Blink by "Ben Wah Balls"

Wasn't the self-titled already written, lyrically, before Kurt got there?
No way, Jonny only writes about sex haha. Kurt wrote those lyrics about relationship problems he was having.

Last DGD comment ahaha

Had a chance to get to know Shay a little throughout the Outbreak Tour. Amazing musician and a real person. I hope he can through this. Wish him all the best.

Even if you hate this band, you got to admit that was pretty damn respectful of Shay to come out and be so honest.

I like OM&M for what it is and will miss Shay's vocals but if he needs to bow out then this is the best way it went down.

Kuddos to him and I hope he gets the help he needs.

Not to add to the off topic DGD fued but Kurt is what made DGD good IMO. He sang with real passion (not just one same high note) which made him sound better than Johnny and he seemed a lot more creative. The day DGD kicked out Kurt was the day the band I cared for ended.

Dan Arnold could totally save this band. No idea if he would, but I'm sure he still has close ties with this band..Plus Elevate:I Am is ASL w/o Dan.. and it's about time Dan get some recognition.

oh and it's definitely very noble of Shayley to be so mature about something that can make you so immature

This isnt a good news at all. Of Mice & Men are one of the best band in their genre (yeah call it generic if you want) and Shayley's vocals were one of the main reason they are at the top of their game.

Can't wait to see where this band is going without him.

When he gets healthy he should just reform Covette. Better off with being the only voice.

EDIT: As much as I really don't like Shayley (because of what hes been trying to do with my friend) I respect this decision to get healthy. It's a lot more admirable to admit a problem then to hide it and hurt many people.
Machines are taking Over was a great album and really made me love his vocals, hopefully he actually does end up back in Covette or start something new.
