Drummer leaves The Kaiser Chiefs

Nick Hodgson, the drummer of the Kaiser Chiefs, has just announced on twitter that he has left the band.


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!


It's a shame, but things change. Loads of luck with your new stuff @nickkaiserchief. See you at the pub / #LUFC / a gig. Nut x
