The Black Summer Crush have parted ways with front-man Thomas Flowers (ex-Oleander). As a result, the band will now be fronted by Jay Buchanan and have changed the band name to The Pleasant Return.
Flowers is rumored to be reuniting with his former Oleander band-mates.
Oh man, please let this be true. Oleander was a great band.
Long time coming.
This tells me it’s more than a side project that is evolving. The final decision was more like a ‘Velvet Revolver’ scenario where the frontman has a band that’s on hiatus, which is the similarity between Stone Temple Pilots and Oleander, things will look good that it’ll indeed come true, in this case for Oleander.

The band is on an unofficial hiatus. No statement has been released by the band, however vocalist Thomas Flowers is currently (was) collaborating with the band The Black Summer Crush.

What was formerly ‘Black Summer Crush’, what was “ex” Oleander singer Thomas Flowers is considered to be ‘side project’ till things, I believe, got serious enough to start as a full-fledge band and go on the ‘indie’ circuit.
Scoop under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleander_%28band%29 and read that if it is true, Oleander has no drummer available since Scott Devours departed back in 2003 to join with another band, Ima Robot. They’ll be in the same boat as Theory of a Deadman who are enjoying themselves really well (surprised) promoting “Scars & Souvenirs”.
