They did. A few of the actual original members don't endorse this reunion, and they denied joining it. Eerie Von posted about it on his Facebook.

Was there an announcement of the departure of the other guy... Connor Doyle... or is he sitting a tour out or something?

Side note: that guy kind of looks like me, and we play the exact same guitar...

Loved their Philly set too! It had a great, avant-garde, Oingo Boingo, wackyness to it! Lots of fun. If Brand New fans could get down with Man Man, then maybe Shone will make more sense to them....

Fair enough! Yeah, the album sets out really to only do one thing... and like you said, it definitely accomplishes it, for better or for worse. I liked the idea of what they did with the drums, but I...

hahaha I will say, you calling it "boring" isn't totally unwarranted. The songs generally are one theme throughout. I think "This Means War" drags on for a few minutes too long... "Crimson Day" is...
