O-Town Reunites ... Minus One Key Member

1/18/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just when you were thinking, "Hey, whatever happened to those guys from O-Town??" -- TMZ has learned 4 out of 5 band members have reunited ... and they've already begun to record new music!

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.

The D-list of 2000s boy bands. They'll be playing Holiday Inn lobbies if they go on tour.

#7 Brian must be their new manager. He's lucky he won't have to worry about ending up in jail after stealing from them because there won't be anything to steal. Maybe they can revive the Tiffany shopping mall tour concept.

Trevor works as a server at some restaurant in Hollywood. Thought it was strange when he was taking our food order.

7- I sincerely doubt any of the haters are jealous of O town. Seriously dude the boy band thing is a total joke, and I suggest you google Vigilant Citizen and read the article on the movie Josie and the *****cats, and become enlightened.

This just instantly brought out the teenage girl in me--So excited to hear their new material, which for the second album was GREAT, let's hope this time around they have more control over their own music. Ashley Angel ended up being a D-Bag anywayssssssss!
