Lostprophets drummer to join Nine Inch Nails full-time
Lostprophets drummer Ilan Rubin has spoken to NME.COM about his departure from the band, confirming that his exit will be permanent.

As previously reported Rubin has left the Welsh outfit to join Nine Inch Nails - replacing Josh Freese.

Rubin revealed he will leave Lostprophets for good after finishing up the final touches on their forthcoming new album in Los Angeles, and is unlikely to play live with them again.

"As of January that's [Nine Inch Nails] going to have to be my full time thing," he told NME.COM. "I know that I'm not just in to fill in for a couple of months. I'll be there for whatever needs to be done, and that's basically that's my new position."

Rubin, who has been with Lostprophets since 2005, said his bandmates had been supportive about his decision to leave.

"They're [Lostprophets] very supportive of me going because they knew it would be good for me," he said. "They're fans of Nine Inch Nails themselves so I can honestly say there's no hard feelings. I'll be able to leave on a positive note and remain friends with everybody."

Speaking about the forthcoming Lostprophets album, Rubin added, "I've been a part of this album from the beginning so it was only natural that I see it through 'til the end."
