Kaiser Chiefs drummer and songwriter, Nick Hodgson announced via Twitter today that he has quit the band. He tweeted: "I can confirm I have left Kaiser Chiefs after 15 spectacular years. I'm moving on. I wish the rest of the band the very best!"
The exit seems to be amicable, and his bandmates have only wished him the best in his future endeavors. Bassist Simon Rix said, "Good luck to @nickkaiserchief with his plans. I can exclusively confirm we will still be collaborating on pints in pubs." Guitarist Andrew 'Whitey' White joked, "Gonna miss you @nickkaiserchief... can I have your bunk? X" Fellow bandmate and front man Ricky Wilson replied to the post with a very sweet message saying, "The door is on the latch and the key under the mat. X"
