Charlottesville, VA's Stabones are returning from a summer off with a new lineup. Founding bassist Mark left the band at the end of July to start anew in Pittsburgh while original guistarist Cayman has gone to France for a year. In the shuffle drummer Larson has switched to bass and the Dirge, formally of DC based ska band the Decpticonz, is taking over on the skins. After several fill in dates, guitarist Tommy O of Charlottesville indie rock band Minus The Sidekick has also become a full time member. You can hear the new lineup on a live recording of the new song "Drunken Express" that's available on the band's MySpace page.
