News The Big Pink Lose Member, Will Continue As Solo Project

The duo has now become the solo project of Robbie Furze.

In a entirely unexpected turn of events, The Big Pink is now the solo moniker of Robbie Furze.

Having released their second album 'Future This' back in January 2012, the London duo were (as far as we were aware, at least) hard at work on its follow-up. However, it was announced yesterday (20th February) that Milo Cordell would be leaving the band.

Revealing the news via the pair's Facebook page, Furze also updated fans on how things were going in the studio with drummer Vicky Jean Smith:

'Milo has moved to NYC to run his label, Merok and is no longer an active member in the big pink.
I am in the studio at the moment and well into the 3rd big pink record. I have been working with a variety of different people, including supreme cuts, the drum, van rivers (fever ray) and andrew wyatt. Me and vicky have recently returned to Electric lady studio in New York, where we recorded 'a brief history of love' to record and co produce new 3 tracks with john o'mahoney. We are supporting BRMC at the end of march in UK. To road test some new material and blast out some old. Robbie x'

As mentioned, Furze will be taking his new solo moniker on the road alongside Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, visiting the following cities.

10 Belfast, Limelight LIMELIGHT
24 Manchester, HMV Ritz
25 Glasgow, O2 ABC
26 Birmingham, HMV Institute
27 London, O2 Academy Brixton
29 Nottingham, Rock City
