Singer Tom Meighan has released a statement, hours after Kasabian announced he would be leaving the band.
The Leicester-based rock band announced earlier today that their frontman was departing.
In their statement, Kasabian said that Meighan had “struggled with personal issues that have affected his behaviour for quite some time and now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track”.
Kasabian added that they would not bee commenting further.
However, this afternoon Meighan made a statement from his personal Twitter account addressing the decision.
He said: “Following today’s announcement I just wanted to let you all know that I am doing well. I’m in a really good place now.
“Thanks for all your love and support. I’ll be seeing you all very soon. TM x.”
The tweet was met with an outpouring of support from his many fans.
One Twitter user said: “You’re the best frontman on the planet Tom, No Meighan no Kasabian it’s as simple as that. Hope you get back on track and enjoy time with your kids, The band have given me the best times of my life, Just gutted it’s ended.
Another replied to Meighan’s statement saying: “You’ve made so many people happy on so many occasions hope you find that happiness too mate. Hope to see you on stage again one day.”
The lead singer has been part of the band since their creation in 1997, alongside Serge Pizzorno and Chris Edwards.
Live Nation declined to comment in regards to any future concerts with Kasabian.
