Pitchfork is reporting that Ted Leo And The Pharmacists bassist Dave Lerner has left the band. This past Sunday's show at Brooklyn's McCarren Park Pool was reportedly Lerner's last with the band. The split looks to be amicacable as "Leo toasted Lerner with a bottle of bubbly" during the performance.

No replacement has been announced yet but the Pharmacists have a break until September sees them out on the road again. The band released Living with the Living this year via Touch and Go.
