Kaiser Chiefs post statement about Nick’s departure

NickKaiserChiefsThe Kaiser Chiefs have posted a short statement about Drummer Nick “Peanut” Baines’ departure from the band. The statement reads as follows:

We can confirm that Nick has decided not to be in the band anymore and that our show at Reading Festival in August was his last as a member of Kaiser Chiefs. Nick tweeted earlier, “I can confirm I have left Kaiser Chiefs after 15 spectacular years. I’m moving on. I wish the band the very best! Ricky messaged Nick, “The door is on the latch and the key is under the mat…” before stating, “We’ve all had a while to get used to it – we’ve got a bunch of shows next year and things are sounding great in the studio”.  Simon Rix sent his best wishes to Nick “good luck to ‪@nickkaiserchief with his plans. I can exclusively confirm we will still be collaborating on pints in pubs”. Here’s to you Nick! 

The band released The Future is Medival earlier this year to mixed reviews. The post mentions more tour dates for 2013 and a quick check of their tour page confirms more dates in the UK, Chile, and Brazil. No US dates have been announced.
