The Drums' Adam Kessler has quit the band.

The group confirmed that the guitarist has left them in a post on Thedrums.com.

"There have been some questions as to recent events and we are sorry to say that Adam has left The Drums," they wrote. "Jonny, Jacob and Connor are devastated and are keeping to themselves and with friends at this time. The band are currently on the road in America. Thank you for all of the support, it means a lot."

No further reason for Kessler's departure has been given, although he was present at the band's Reading And Leeds Festival sets.

There is no word yet on whether he will be replaced.

It's not been a good week for The Drums, with Nicky Wire earlier telling NME the band "make him feel ill".
