Dandy Warhols Drummer Leaves Group To DJ

The Dandy Warhols have parted ways with drummer Eric Hedford, citing creative differences and his interest in pursuing a dance-oriented project under the name DJ Aquaman.

The Warhols have tapped Brent DeBoer, a friend of frontman Courtney Taylor, to serve as the interim drummer, but a press release for the group stated that "no long-term replacement for Hedford has been named at this time." Hedford had played on the group's first two albums.

The band will launch its European Tour in support of "...The Dandy Warhols Come Down" on April 14.
