The soap opera continues. Apparently, the boys in the band did a little Interwebbing after several weeks touring in Europe (and without online access?) and were shocked to discover that their managers had been harassing the nice Brit bloggers who'd been invited to review the upcoming album.

Ars Technica, reporting in detail, wonders if it might all be an elaborate ploy to generate buzz for the new stuff. WB is $eriou$ly $hocked by the mere $ugge$tion....
