Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has left the band.

In a short statement issued earlier today (Monday 6 July), the band said:

“Tom is stepping down from the band 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.”

The band said that they would be making no further comment.
