Ficek, who performs solo under the Roses Kings Castles name, joined the Pete Doherty-fronted act in 2005.

A statement from Babyshambles’ spokesperson issued to NME said: “Babyshambles have parted company with drummer Adam Ficek. Currently booked Babyshambles commitments will take place with Danny Goffey of Supergrass filling in on drums.”

Babyshambles are set to play the NME Weekender at Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Centre, which takes place between November 5 and 7.
