US band The Drums have released a statement about their current band status: "There have been some questions as to recent events and we are sad to confirm that Adam Kessler has left The Drums. The Drums (Jonny, Jacob and Connor) will continue as a three member band, and though we are distressed by recent events we are excited for the future. Despite recent reports, we haven't replaced anyone. We have started work on the new album and are all thrilled to be embarking on our first US tour this month and returning to the UK in November to play concerts. We thank you all for your support and will see you soon" If you are a fan of The Drums, don't worry. As mentioned in their statement, the band are continuing with their proposed dates in the US, whilst also embarking upon a headline winter tour in the UK this year. Some dates are already sold out, so the news of the split has certainly not hindered them! Alongside this, the band are also set to release their next single, 'Me and the Moon', on November 7th.
