SO, me and my band have now played a few gigs.
and they decide they wanna replace the singer with somone more.. well better i guess is the term.

irony is, i'm the singer.
they want me to continue to play rhythm guitar, and use my garage to practice. but a new singer is in order according to them..

should i just say screw it and play rhythm? or bail.

well it all depends; do you consider yourself a vocalist, or a guitar player? do you like your vocals, or no, or are u impartial? if u are a guitar player and dont like/care about your vocals, then suck it up and find someone new, otherwise, come to a compromise with them- but then again thats just me =)

If you're happy playing rhythm then you should carry on. I suppose it depends of what kind of music you play though. Some music has great rhythm guitar, and some doesn't *Cough*Punk*Cough*.

You can always bail at some other time after giving it a go if you want.

try it out and see if you can tell a change for the better, and if you can deal with not being the front man. You might find you like the new role better, or not. If not tell them to piss off, and find/form another band.

this is very true also, backup vocals are nothing to be ashamed of

well if you feel that way and if you think you're comfortable (both personally and technically) its time to strike out on your own
grab some musicians and kick some ass

Yeah, but it's not very satisfying to play

i understand your problem mate
i know its a completely different style of music but i play in a metal band (in the style of bfmv and killswitch engage) and theres very few people in my local area who are into it so its really difficult to try and gather support
so in my spare time (if you can call it that) i play acoustic or pop music either by myself or with my friend
maybe you could keep playing as rhythmn guitarist/backing vocals in your band and then start up a side project with some other musicians of similar tastes/enthusiasm as you

but it is good fun to play imo, and you can jump about when you play it without having to worry about messing up
