This statement released in the last few minutes from The Darkness:
“…sad to say our fantastic drummer Emily Dolan Davies is leaving for new projects, and so we part ways with fond farewells. Emily played a huge part in the recording of our new album ‘Last of Our Kind’ and makes a final appearance in the video for our single ‘Open Fire’ which is coming to a screen near you soon … Good luck Emily!”
Indeed, good luck.
And… new drummer search starts/has started/is in progress/nearly over. Delete as applicable, I don’t know which is truest.
