American rocker Jay Reatard is searching for a new band to take on tour to Europe, after bassist STEPHEN POPE and drummer BILLY HAYES quit.
Reatard announced the pair's departure in a foul-mouthed rant, just weeks before the trio were due to hit the road.
The singer wrote, "Band quit! F**k them! They are boring rich kids who can't play for s**t anyways. Say hello to your ugly and boring wives, oops, I mean lives, guys. Suck it".
