UK rockers Stone Gods (formed from the ashes of The Darkness) have announced the permanent departure of drummer and founding member Ed Graham, despite the band receiving much acclaim in its infancy.
The band conducted their recent sell-out UK tour minus Ed, when he was taken ill a few days prior to the start. Graham's temporary replacement came in the form of ex-Bush drummer Robin Goodridge, who joined them on tour playing both Download and the Isle of Wight Festivals.
This departure has meant the guys are unable to appear at the Wacken Festival as planned.
No permanent replacement has yet been found, but we will keep you updates!
