King King’s founding member and bass player Lindsay Coulson has announced he’s leaving King King after the bands forthcoming UK tour.

Lindsay Coulson: “After 10 years of continued success with the band and everything the future now holds for them, I have made the difficult decision to depart from the group to concentrate on family and other personal endeavours.  I wish the rest of the guys continued success and thank everyone involved with the band and all the fans and followers all the very best for the future.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at the UK shows for one last time”
