Indie band The Drums are refusing to cancel their U.S. tour following the departure of guitarist ADAM KESSLER.
The group kicked off a string of shows earlier this month (Sep10) but Kessler has not been present at the gigs - and the remaining bandmembers admit they are "devastated" at their pal's sudden departure.
A post on their official website reads, "There have been some questions as to recent events and we are sorry to say that Adam has left The Drums.
"Jonny, Jacob and Connor are devastated and are keeping to themselves and with friends at this time. The band are currently on the road in America. Thank you for all of the support, it means a lot."
