I heard about that as well, but I don't think it's gonna do it for me. I found Shayley's vocals to be so unique, pretty much irreplaceable in the band.
Don't count them out just yet even though that interview made Austin come out a major douche he mentioned they are spending a good few months recording this next album. The longest they have done so far. Providing they keep Jamie's Elsewhere's ex vocalist that is. Wasn't a fan of the 4 tracks they released on the new The Flood release.
