of montreal's tour manager Mike (m.t. on the E6 Townhall) has confirmed Ahmed is joining the group, and also relieves some tension by letting us know Jamey isn't going anywhere. And then he gets our hearts racing even more for Skeletal Lamping:
"Just so you know, Jamey has not left the band. He is still working on his own stuff though which is amazing. If anyones going to Calgary or Rothbury, you will see him there. As far as Ahmed, you will have to wait til the tour in the fall to see what we've been cooking up, its gonna be awesome."
