Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson has said that he has "cleared the air" with the band's former drummer and songwriter, Nick Hodgson.

Hodgson quit the Kaiser Chiefs at the end of 2012. Earlier today, Wilson took to Twitter to say that he had spoken to Hodgson on the phone, writing:



At the time, Hodgson explained to NME that he'd always planned to leave the band by the age of 35. He now works full-time as a producer and songwriter at his 'Chewdio' studios in East London. He commented: "I'd always thought I'd do it. I like studios a lot, I like producing, I like finding bands, I like working with bands, I like writing songs. And now I can do them all."

Ricky Wilson will tomorrow (January 11) make his debut as a coach on BBC1 talent show The Voice. In this week's NME he speaks about his role on the show and the motivation behind appearing alongside fellow coaches will.i.am, Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones. Wilson explained: "I love my band and I want our new record to get noticed. I know that everyone is going, 'He thinks he's going to sell more records and more tickets.' And that is why I'm doing it. I'm not a fucking idiot."

Kaiser Chiefs recently revealed two new songs, 'Bows & Arrows' and 'Misery Company', both of which are taken from the band's forthcoming new album 'Education, Education, Education & War', which will be released on March 31.
