Sarah Gardiner leaves the band ahead of tour

Operator Please have announced that keyboardist Sarah Gardiner is quitting the band.

The departure was announced after the group finished filming for the video for their new single ‘Two For My Seconds’.

Gardiner explained her decision to leave by posting on Facebook.

“The video features myself truly playing the piano on a busy street in Sydney,” she wrote, “an oddly appropriate send off!”

The band say the decision to split was mutual, following Gardiner‘s two-month break from touring.

Operator Please are auditioning replacements for their upcoming European tour, which starts with the Camden Crawl this week (April 18).
