Reports are saying that Manchester Orchestra have announced a replacement for drummer Jeremiah Edmond, who left the band earlier this year. News outlets are citing a Twitter post by Manchester Orchestra that reads, "everybody add Manchester Orchestra's very own awesome drummer ben homola."

However, Ben Homola, who has been playing shows with the band and helping out with the band's upcoming full-length, immediately took to his own Twitter, saying, "Just to clear things up...I'm not the official drummer of Manchester. I'm still just playing live and helping out with the record."

Manchester Orchestra did post another cryptic comment about their drumming situation, saying, "Dear waking Ashland. Thanks for this sick ass drummer."

We'll keep you posted if an official announcement is made.
