For his part, Craig appears to be staying positive about the move, writing on his Twitter:
No statement has been made by the band at this time. They last released Downtown Battle Mountain II in 2011.
DGD wants to go harder and I don't, so they have found another singer. The All Stars tour shit just kinda rushed what was gonna happen anyway. I love the dudes and the band but I feel I'm made for more then what I've been doing. I respect DGD and whatever they do. It's better this way. I'm sure whoever they get will sing my songs perfectly. I respect what they want and I know I'm going to move forward like always.
