These past few days, they guys of O-Town have let us know that they’re already working on new O-Town music for their 2011 Reunion. They’ve posted info at their official twitter @OTOWNBAND and Erik has twitted about it too.
“WHITE BOARDING: As many ideas for @OTOWNBAND – set list, images and *NEW* studio recordings/productions. Need a FEW more whiteboards…”
“If you were listening to what I’m listening to right now, you would’ve forgot where you were driving, too. #NewOTownMusic“
Be sure to follow O-Town’s official twitter account @OTOWNBAND for the latest updates on the 2011 reunion 🙂
The newly-reunited members of boyband O-TOWN were “really hurt” when ASHLEY PARKER ANGEL refused to sign up for their pop comeback, according to singer ERIK-MICHAEL ESTRADA.
The All Or Nothing hitmakers, who formed on the first season of MTV reality show Making The Band in 2000, announced earlier this week (begs17Jan11) they are reforming as a four-piece, without Parker Angel.
The star, who has gone on to perform on Broadway and land acting roles in TV and film, called the decision “difficult” but “necessary” to move on with his career.
Estrada has now spoken out about the snub, insisting he thought Parker Angel “would want to be a part” of the reunion.
He tells TMZ.com, “He said he’s not gonna do it, man. You know, he’s doing his own thing. I guess he can’t multi-task. He wants to be an actor and you know, that’s cool.
“At first we were really hurt by it to be honest with you… We did something real special… We weren’t the best group in the world, we weren’t ‘N Sync or Backstreet Boys, but we had a lot of fun doing what we did and we made a lot of people feel good… There’s something to be said about that. The times we’re experiencing right now I would just think he’d wanna jump on board and I thought he would want to be a part of that. But he doesn’t and that’s cool… to each their own. We just want to go on and sing.”

And what about his bandmates’ thoughts about it?
–Erik-Michael Estrada: “(In the ‘All For Love’ melody) “Bout – dan – time” RT @Trevor_Penick: Yes we win! Hit up Dan Miller @danmillerotown. Lets blow him up”
–Trevor Penick: “Yes we win! Hit up Dan Miller @danmillerotown. Lets blow him up”, “@danmillerotown now all of our fans follow you buddy keep us updated”
Sources close to the band tell TMZ … Erik-Michael, Dan, Trevor and Jacob are back in the studio … sans one member who just didn’t feel like getting the band back together — Ashley Parker-Angel.
We’re told the guys — who were all plucked out of obscurity on the very first “Making the Band” in 2000 — have been kicking around the idea of a reunion for a while … and have spent almost a year trying to get Ashley on board.
But a few weeks ago — when it became clear Ashley wasn’t going to change his mind — the guys decided to officially move forward without him … and are now trying to work out some tour dates.
They want it all … or nothing at all.
Happy Birthday Dan!!!
