Lemolo at Columbia City Theater in 2012.

There’s sad news today for fans of dream-pop rockers Lemolo. The band released a statement on their website yesterday letting fans know there will be some changes in the group’s lineup. Since the band is a duo the lineup shakeup is more or less a breakup but from the sounds of things the ladies of Lemolo, Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox, made an amicable split.

According to the statement, Crandall will continue to make music under the Lemolo name and Cox has decided to leave the band to ” forge a new path of her own.” There’s no word on whether Grandall will now make Lemolo a solo project or what Cox’s new path will be.

Here’s the band’s statement on the breakup. Go ahead and take a listen to Lemolo’s blissfully beautiful “On Again, Off Again” while you read it.

Dear Friends  & Loyal Lemolo Listeners,

We are writing today to share the news that Lemolo will be undergoing a change in lineup and we (Meagan & Kendra) will be parting ways musically. After nearly five years of rocking and rolling together we remain loving friends and very supportive of each other and our musical futures. Meagan will be continuing on under the Lemolo name and is currently working on the next album of new songs she can’t wait for you to hear. And Kendra is excited to forge a new path of her own. We are following our hearts and believe that this is the best decision for both of us. Change isn’t easy and this is no exception. But we are so very grateful for the support you have given us over the last five years and we hope to have your love and kindness through this time of transition.

Cheers to a brilliant future,
Meagan & Kendra
