Never denied that. They spent the better part of 2-3 years forging on without him, why backtrack?
To clarify, I would love if Aaron was on this, for at least a few songs here and there or something. I just think it won't happen.
My only thought/hope is that the short tour may be a result of him only being available for a small number of dates. Either way it's going to be awesome to be a part of the final tour. They were my first show in high school.
