"Why hello boys and girls!
Thought we'd throw you all a quick little update about what's currently going on in the AA! lineup.
The band and Nick parted ways recently in a mutually agreed non-explosive fashion, which we all believe is the best for both sides.
Caleb is going to retire his keys and start screaming in the front of the band.
We DO NOT have a new person in our band.
Don't worry, our music will still be full of Caleb's programming, keys, and all the good things he concocts. It will just be back-tracked live with the 808 samples and other nonsense on my iPod.
Anyways, we're not gonna stop touring, playing shows, and having a generally wonderful time with all of you.
See you in your town soon!
