Young Guns have revealed they’ve split with drummer Ben Jolliffe.
The London rockers have completed their fourth album, but are on the hunt for a new sticksman after the departure of Jolliffe, who joined in 2007.
Young Guns say: “We’ve been quiet for a few months now and in that time we have written and recorded our fourth album.
“We are ready once again to release new music and head back out on tour. To say we’re excited is an understatement.
“During this period we underwent some changes in camp YG and so now time has come for us to announce that we have parted ways with our drummer Ben.
“We have always been friends before bandmates and that will never change - our paths are simply headed in different directions and we agreed on this being the best thing to do for all of us. We wish him all the best.”
