The I Believe in a Thing Called Love hitmakers have survived a number of line-up changes since their formation in 2000, and Davies joined original members Justin Hawkins, his brother Dan Hawkins and bassist Frankie Poullain last year (14) following the departure of drummer Ed Graham.

The British rockers released a statement on Monday (20Apr15) announcing her departure.

It reads, "Sad to say our fantastic drummer Emily Dolan Davies is leaving for new projects, and so we part ways with fond farewells. Emily played a huge part in the recording of our new album Last of Our Kind and makes a final appearance in the video for our single Open Fire which is coming to a screen near you soon... Good luck Emily!"
