Beach Fossils @ South Street Seaport last Friday (more by Chris La Putt)
Captured Tracks confirm that Beach Fossils guitarist Sennott Burke has left the band. Sennott himself got in touch and told me, "I have nothing but love for the band and everyone in it. I just need to do my own thing." He added that, "If you are interested in playing guitar for Beach Fossils, get in touch via email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP and be ready to leave Friday." Friday is the date of their Toledo, Ohio show.
This may or may not have something to do with a bass being lobbed into a river.
This news comes the same day that Vivian Girls & Best Coast announce new drummers.
Beach Fossils are scheduled to play Mercury Lounge with Small Black on Wednesday night (7/14, before Friday, before Toledo) (and the Bug Jar in Rochester tonight, even more before Toledo).
It's unclear if these shows are affected at the moment (update: Sennott says, "Yeah, I'll be there, I'm going to finish this leg of tour and possibly longer, pending replacement."). All dates below...
