Kasabian have announced that frontman Tom Meighan is leaving the band after suffering with personal issues.
In a statement on the band’s official Twitter page they said;
“Tom Meighan is stepping down from Kasabian by mutual consent. Tom has struggled with personal issues that have affected his behaviour for quite some time and now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track. We will not be commenting further.”
Tom Meighan was one of Kasabian’s founding members, forming the band in 1997 with Serge Pizzorno, Chris Karloff and Chris Edwards.
It is yet to be confirmed if Kasabian will continue to tour and record live music without Meighan.
