Shortly after the tour in 2009 FDH Records released a split record between Mangled Bohemians and Philadelphia psych legends Lunch With Beardo, and the UK label Reverb Worship re-released "Degeneration" bringing a close to the year. 2010 started again with another tour alongside acts such as The Drug Purse,Lozen, The Why Because, Psychic Reality,Evan Caminiti(Barn Owl) and many more. The year also saw the band releasing more material in Europe landing songs on compilations in Finland and Germany, and releasing another split record with Baseball Camp Nurse on Icky Recordings. In the spring Shoptaw decided to leave the band to explore other possibilities, leaving Lee with a difficult task, rebuild the band or continue solo.
With many dates already booked Lee chose to continue performing as Mangled Bohemians by himself. This changed the sound and dynamic greatly. What once was an Art/Noise group now has become an ambient, psychedelic singer songwriter act more reminiscent of Grouper,Kurt Vile or Six Organs of Admittance. 2011 will bring forth the 2nd album "At the Edge of the Earth",other releases, and extensive touring throughout the year.
