Just five months after the release of its second Interscope album, "Hell Below/Stars Above," Ft. Worth, Texas-based rock act the Toadies has split. Singer/guitarist Todd Lewis confirmed the split to the Dallas Observer, saying the band made the decision during its spring tour in support of the album, when founding bassist Lisa Umbarger said she was quitting.
Texas-based modern rock act the Toadies has set a March 20 release date for its sophomore Interscope album "Hell Below/Stars Above." The release marks the group's first album since 1994's "Rubberneck," which peaked at No. 56 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the top-10 rock airplay hit "Possum Kingdom." The song continues to be a recurrent track in the format; 39 of 51 active rock stations reporting to Billboard sister publication Airplay Monitor spun it between Jan. 22 and Jan. 28.
