Mike wrote this on his message board:
"There's a reason I post WHAT I post WHEN I post it...
Don't you think if I wanted the guitar player announced, I would've done it???
I appreciate your enthusiasm here, but please respect my wishes to only disclose certain things when *I* want that info disclosed and announced
How on Earth can that be misunderstood or misinterpreted in any way...it would seem pretty obvious to me "
So, doesn't look like the leaks are intentional. Not the best way to handle that sort of thing. Then again, if you're gonna hype this thing, why not just tell us who is in the band? Or just keep it secret you're even working on something.
