Long time keyboardist and founding member Jesse Carmichael has announced the end of his hiatus from his band Maroon 5 yesterday (Tuesday, Apr. 15). A photo was taken of him playing on a grand piano in a studio in Los Angeles yesterday and was published to Instagram. The caption read "Just back in the studio today for the new M5 record." It continued by saying "I kiss the sand of my homeland after many years of absence... XOXOXOOX."
Many fans were skeptical about his returning to the band since Adam Levine confirmed the band was in the studio recording their fifth album late last year basically due to not hearing from him.
