LONDON (AP) – Singer Tom Meighan has left British rockers Kasabian to face “personal problems,” the group said on Monday.
Kasabian said in a statement that Meighan “withdrew from the group by mutual consent. Tom has struggled with personal issues that affected his behavior for a while and now wants to focus all of his energies to get his life back on track. “
Founded in the English city of Leicester in 1997, Kasabian released their self-titled debut album in 2004 and has grown to become one of the UK’s biggest live and recorded bands. The group has released six albums and titled Glastonbury and other major music festivals.
A hometown show slated for Leicester in June was scuttled by the coronavirus pandemic.
Last month, Meighan said he was working on solo material, but insisted the band was “still solid.”
