Razorlight lose two band members

Johnny Borrell is the only original member of Razorlight left in their line-up

Razorlight have said goodbye to two of their founding members - guitarist Bjorn Agren and bassist Carl Dalemo.

Gus Robertson will step into Bjorn's shoes, while Freddie Stitz will fill Carl's place as they begin work on their new album and for live performances.

The news was posted on the group's website, where the band said in a statement: "We can officially confirm that founder members Bjorn Agren (guitar) and Carl Dalemo (bass) 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 Dalemo is planning his own band."

Frontman Johnny Borrell, who formed the band in 2002, is the sole remaining founding member. He is joined by drummer David 'Skully' Sullivan Kaplan, who took over when Andy Burrows left in 2008.

Razorlight's new line-up is set to headline a series of shows across the summer including Edinburgh Corn Exchange on April 3 as part of the city festival Haddowfest, a soon to be announced outdoor event in London, and Guilfest on July 16, with more to be announced shortly.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
