Singer Kelli Dayton has left the British trip-hop trio Sneaker Pimps, according to a spokeswoman at their Virgin Records label, who termed the split an amicable one. Remaining founding members Liam Howe and Chris Corner are currently working on the follow-up to their 1997 debut, Becoming X, with Corner filling the newly opened vocal slot. Dayton is in the studio, as well, but no word was available at this time as to her future plans.
