    Guitarist Tyler Ramsey and bassist Bill Reynolds have both left Band of Horses. The departures came within hours of one another, and both former members took to their personal social media accounts to announce they've stepped away from the band after 10 years.

    Ramsey made his announcement on Instagram, "Saying farewell after 10 years to the band of horses. We certainly had some good times and I'm sure I will miss the beautifully dysfunctional family we became. I'll be releasing my new record and touring this fall and I look forward to seeing everybody!"

    Reynolds' announcement came via Facebook, "I'd like to thank all the beautiful folks I have met out there on the road with Band of Horses. Thank you for all the support and encouragement, I am very grateful to have been a part of such an amazing band. I am moving on to pursue other things. I will be producing records, doing photography, and who knows, maybe I'll go on the road again someday. Lots of Love, Bill"

    Both Ramsey and Reynold joined Band of Horses in 2007 shortly after the release of their breakthrough record Cease to Begin.

    The news comes just as Band of Horses were preparing to head out on a massive summer tour. The band has made no comment on the departures at this time, and as of now, the band is still set to kick off their summer tour May 18th.
