More than likely, yes. The response to his Mess albums has been overwhelmingly more positive than the response to AMDP. Mess is more the direction he feels his music is heading anyway, plus the AMDP guys are doing their own thing back in their hometowns while Ace is home in Jersey.
Ace never ceases to amaze me. I was almost dead set on Gold Rush being the final product from my favorite musician, but this just brightened my day. I get so excited every time I hear this man is working on new material. I'm really looking forward to the 3 acoustic songs as well.
