Razorlight changes the Bands Lineup
Razorlight have revealed major changes to their lineup, after photos of the new-look band surfaced online.
The ’America’ songwriters released an official statement on their Facebook page confirming the departures of two founding members – guitarist Bjorn Agren and bass player Carl Dalemo – and unveiling the identities of their replacements.
The statement reads: “We can officially confirm that founder members Bjorn Agren and Carl Dalemo agreed on an amicable parting following unproductive early recording sessions for a new album late last year. Agren is currently producing, remixing and playing guitar with Lucy Rose and Carl Dalemo is planning his own band.
“Gus Robertson (Mick Jones) comes in as guitarist and Freddie Stitz (Smokey Angle Shades) joins the band on bass. Skully, who took over when Andy Burrows left in 2008, continues as Razorlight’s drummer.”
The changes make lead singer and rhythm guitarist Johnny Borrell the last remaining original member of the band.
The new lineup will play their first UK gig on April 3 in Edinburgh, before headlining this year’s Guilfest and a soon-to-be-announced London festival in the summer
