Morgan Quaintance to focus on Plugs full-time

Does It Offend You, Yeah?‘s guitarist Morgan Quaintance has quit the band to pursue a career with his other band Plugs.

Speaking to NME.COM, Quaintance explained his decision for leaving the outfit, saying he wanted to have more creative control – something which he felt he could do in Plugs rather than in Does It Offend You, Yeah?.

“It [his time in Does It Offend You, Yeah?] just came to a natural end really,” he explained. “I think there was only so much I could sort of do in that outfit and I kind of wanted to do a bit more musically and creatively, and I think that the only way I could do that was in my own group.”

Quaintance continued: “Plugs is my band and Does It Offend You, Yeah? was never really my sort of band aesthetically. I didn’t really have much choice, I just sort of had to go along with a lot of the stuff that was happening, whereas in Plugs it’s like we write the music, we produce it, we do the artwork, we’ve directed our own video – it just like feels like a creative outlet for me more than Does It Offend You, Yeah?.”

Plugs‘ new single, ‘All Them Witches’, is out on May 18.
