MESSAGE FROM O-TOWN

Based on the rumors that were circulating and the many questions posed by fans following Ashley's announcement of his solo debut album, Inside O-Town asked Ashley to get a statement from all 5 guys to give to the fans about the future of O-Town and what each of them are doing now. This is the statement that Ash gave us after consulting with all of the guys - please note that all O-Town sites are welcome to reprint this statement provided that credit is given to www.insideotown.com. Be sure to stay tuned to Inside O-Town for continued updates on the guys.

Dear O-TOWN Fans,

We realize there have been several different rumors circulating about the group and we would like to tell you ourselves exactly where we stand. O-TOWN will always be the greatest blessing any one of us could have ever wished for ... unfortunately, however, we had to sign several contracts that were not in our best interests. We wanted you to know that our decision not to continue forward as O-TOWN was mutual and we all still remain best friends ... that will never change. Here is an update on each one of us:

Jacob has finished building his home in San Diego where he recently served as an honorary fire fighter to protect his neighborhood from the California fires. Thankfully, he and his family are safe. He continues his study of the Bible to regain focus and direction and he is learning more everyday. Dan is living in Orlando where he has been writing and producing a lot of material out of his home studio. He will keep you posted on his plans for upcoming projects. Trevor lives in Southern California where he continues to study acting, professionally. He is currently auditioning for both film and television and can be found on local golf courses everywhere. Ashley resides in Los Angeles where he is currently writing and recording material for a solo album. Shortly, he will be launching his own website where you can find out much more information about this and ask him any questions you might have. As always Erik-Michael is all over the country on any given day. He has constantly been surrounding himself in a work environment. He continues to write incredible songs and has been approached by different companies regarding a solo project. Erik has also been given the opportunity to explore his acting talents and has become quite ambitious about that! He has mentioned the possibility of his own website so keep tuned to Inside O-Town for that link.

We hope this update has answered some of your questions concerning the group. As you know, we truly appreciate all the support of our fans. Talk to you soon!

Love, O-TOWN

ASHLEY NEWS

At Ashley's request, the IO Crew is collaborating with Ashley on his new website and will be instrumental in keeping the site updated! A creative meeting between the IO Crew, Ashley and Tiffany was held at Ashley and Tiffany's home in Los Angeles on November 5, 2003. At the end of the meeting, Ashley offered to pose for some photos and asked to send a video message to the fans. The IO Crew was happy to oblige and is pleased to be able to bring you photos of Ashley and Tiffany at home and Ashley's latest video message to the fans! Ashley and Tiffany have a lovely home in Los Angeles, where they live with their two cats, Peanut and Harmony. We thank them for their hospitality and for always wanting to give new information, photographs and videos to the fans! The IO Crew is very much looking forward to helping with Ashley's website, which is a very exciting new project for us and for Ashley! We'll keep you all posted as this project progresses!

**To check out new Ashley photos at his home and watch a video message that Ashley gave please go to Inside O-Town for the direct links.**

UPDATED NOVEMBER 1, 2003

SIGHTINGS

Ashley has just told the fans that he is hard at work on a solo album and a new website! He is looking forward to launching both in the near future. As far as we know, Ash has not signed with a new label yet, but as soon as we have any new information and a link to the website, we will pass that information along to you! Ashley and his girlfriend, Tiffany, have recently posted on the Inside O-Town message board and have agreed to answer fans' questions as time permits. We can't wait to hear the new album! Hopefully we will have some new photographs and video of Ashley for you all next week.

Dan has settled into a home in Orlando, is doing well and is working hard. He misses performing and we all hope it won't be long before he's doing just that again. Trevor and Dan will be doing the NBA Celebrity Slam in Atlanta on 11/1.

We understand that Trevor is doing auditions in the Los Angeles area. Trevor also plans to play in Hollywood Knights basketball games as his schedule permits. A member of our message board posted about her friend's encounter with Trevor in the Long Beach area during a California State Long Beach event on 10/17.

Sources close to Erik-Michael tell us that he is well and very busy! He is in New York for a week to write and work on some new material in the studio. Then he will return to L.A. and might be there until Christmas time, if not longer. Before that, Erik-Michael was staying for a short while in the L.A. area, combining business and pleasure. Lizzie posted about her encounter with Erik at Disneyland on the Priates of the Caribbean ride during the last weekend in September. Wireimage photographers captured pics of Erik during the red carpet arrivals at the grand opening of Avalon Hollywood on 10/3 and at his birthday party, celebrated on October 8th at the CineSpace on Hollywood Boulevard featuring a Five Four Clothing and Felina Lingerie fashion show.

Although we have no reports on Jacob, we assume that he is enjoying life in the San Diego area with his wife Janie and his “daughter” Abby. Perhaps he is keeping himself busy with whatever commitments he may have to The Warehouse Studios. Career development in the entertainment business can take a while. We will just have to do our best to be patient. We hope that fans will continue to hold all of the guys in their thoughts and prayers.

WHAT'S NEW?!

(October 29, 2003) Ashley contacted the IO Crew and asked them to post new, recent photos of him and to pass along this message to the fans: "What's up everybody!! I just wanted to let you know that I am going to be launching my own website and I am personally inviting all of you to come check it out. This site will be the official source of information on the release of my debut album as a solo artist. I am so excited about it, I wanted you to be the first to know. Love, Ashley" The IO Crew will bring you all the latest information about Ashley, his solo career and his new website, so stay tuned!!


Ashley & Tiffany Thank Fans for the Positive Responses & Invite Fan Questions
(October 29, 2003) Today, Ashley and Tiffany read the thread created on our message board to update board members on the news and photos that Ashley gave us to post. Here is the message they posted on page two of the thread (ashleytiffany, 10/29/03 10:44 am): Hey guys, Ashley and Tiffany here. Thanks for all the positive responses. We are so excited about it. We will be checking out the board from time to time, so feel free to post some questions and we'll try to get on and answer a few. Thanks for all the support.

Southern California Fire Updates
(October 27, 2003) Many residents in Southern California have been forced to evacuate their homes due to wildfires. O-Town fans were concerned about Trevor, Jacob and their families. Doris has advised that the Penicks and their home are safe and many miles from the fire. We have been informed by a source close to Jacob that while fire surrounded the Underwood compound in El Cajon and there was some damage to trees on the property, the structures are untouched and the Underwood family is safe. Please keep everyone in Southern California in your prayers.

TOUR AND APPEARANCE

The current political and economic situation is affecting the concert tour industry. Key decision makers are taking a conservative position and delaying firm commitments until they can see more stable and predictable conditions. Therefore, O-Town's US and Canadian Tour is probably more likely to launch sometime between mid April and mid May.

Additional appearances are in the planning stages and should be confirmed shortly. O-Town may appear in early March on a daytime TV show that is taped in Los Angeles. An appearance at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey in April should be announced soon. We look forward to the announcement of a radio show concert in Fort Myers, Florida in late May. Additional details should be announced in the near future about O-Town's appearance at the Honky Tonk Tailgate Party with Def Leppard on June 12th at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Finally, O-Town will be appearing at a number of events during the 2003 American Power Boat Association http://www.apba- offshore.com/news.cfm?ID=341&Action=view offshore season in conjunction with an agreement O-Town signed with Donzi Marine where O- Town's name will appear on a 38-foot Donzi Factory II class boat entered in the races. Additional details will be announced shortly. The season begins April 11th in Daytona Beach, Florida.

In the Biography section, the guys talk about writing for O2 and their vision for the record. "We were in California, waking up with the sun in our eyes, walking along the beach, and we came to the conclusion that we had to do something fresh, raw, and organic," said Erik. Utilizing the five-part harmonies that are the group’s natural talent while adding in a guitar-driven feel, a new sound emerged during impromptu jam sessions at their beachfront home. "We were able to take the rock feel and put beats underneath and come up with a real, live, raw sound that is uniquely O-Town," said Trevor. Dan believes the new album is the perfect reflection of O-Town fully coming into its own. "O2 is about being happy to be in a position where you can be yourself and not have to play anybody else’s game to get what you want. You can do everything your own way," he said.

MESSAGE FROM O-TOWN
-OTOWN STREET TEAM GOBLINS AND GHOULS-

We are on a roll here with our STREET TEAM LOVE LETTERS, huh?? So last night we all get home from a long day of vocal practice with our vocal coach DOC HOLIDAY (you remember him from MTB) and we just start chillin' out.....every once in awhile a trick or treater would stop by and well....apparently ERIK forgot it was HALLOWEEN and started to think that a lot of fans were stopping by!!!...A LOT MORE THAN USUAL!!!! When he realized that he had forgot it was HALLOWEEN we were all laughing because of how much we lose track of time......SERIOUSLY!!!

Today we are working out the choreography on track number 8 of the album titled "THE JOINT" that ERIK wrote....it is a southern rock/hip- hop up-tempo dance track if you can imagine that but you will HEAR IT NEXT WEEK ON THE PREVIEW TOUR-

We have been eating SUBWAY sandwiches about 3 times a day and we really need a home cooked meal right about now!!! Only 11 days to the album is out!!!

THIS LETTER IS SHORT BUT SWEET BECAUSE WE ARE OVERDOSED ON HALLOWEEN CANDY AND THE SUGAR SHORTS OUR ATTENTION SPAN-
