This morning Robbie Furze of London’s the Big Pink announced, via NME and the band’s Facebook page, that Milo Cordell would depart from the band to work on his Merok label. Merok has released albums and singles from Crystal Castles, Titus Andronicus, Salem, the Teenagers and many others. Furze’s Facebook post is as follows:

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

From the post, it sounds like the band’s in-the-works third album will still be coming out as planned, although without Cordell. The Big Pink has been posting snippets from forthcoming songs on their Soundcloud page, but quickly removing each teaser.
