CSS have parted ways with their bass player, Ira Trevisan.

In a statement issued today (April 11), the band said that they have become a five-piece, with drummer Adriano Cintra taking over bass duties. During live shows the band will perform with a session drummer.

Speaking about her decision to leave the band, Trevisan said, "I decided to move forward and dedicate more of my time to fashion and other projects. Just a big change of priorities, as I will never stop playing music.

"I am also a bit worried about climate change. People should care more and do something about it. I decided to fly less," she added.

"CSS will always be in my heart. They said goodbye to their bass player, but they won a new life-time fan. In health and sickness, in happiness and so forth. Blah blah blah, so help us God."

The band are currently working on the follow-up to their 2006 self-titled debut, which is due out in July.

CSS are expected to announce the dates of a UK tour this spring.
