    After 15 years, Kaiser Chiefs co-founder and drummer Nick Hodgson has quit. Moving on, yo!

    The skinsman, who formed the group with singer Ricky Wilson and guitarist Andrew White, announced his decision via tweet. Who needs a press release nowadays when there is Twitter?

    He posted: "I can confirm I have left Kaiser Chiefs after 15 spectacular years. I'm moving on. I wish the rest of the band the very best!"

    Bassist Simon Rix responded with a tweet, saying, "Good luck to Nick with his plans. I can exclusively confirm we will still be collaborating on pints in pubs."

    Are you bummed about this news? Are you a Kaiser Chiefs fan?
