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.

Are you perturbed by an ethical matter? Speak on behalf of justice. People will be uncomfortable with your dramatic behaviour, but they will respond to it. Waiting for a miracle to arrive simply isn't wise. When you want to make a change, you have to take action, even at the risk of being unpopular.More
