Lemonheads And Atlantic Records Part Company

The group released "Car Button Cloth" in 1997 and garnered positive reviews, but little sales steam as Soundscan reports that the album sold only 84,000 copies. The Lemonheads, which in recent years has become lead singer Evan Dando and a rotating group of musicians, were frustrated by the label's promotional strategy for the album.

Dando, who recently moved to Tucson, Arizona, swears that the Lemonheads will continue to put out music. He is currently working on new material.

Sources close to Atlantic say the label has the option to put out a Lemonheads greatest hits package, and may do so in the near future.
