The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins has quit the band to recover from drink and drug addictions.
The singer has decided to call it a day following a stint in The Priory rehab clinic in London.
"I feel bad for the others (in the band)," he told The Sun newspaper. "It will be an upheaval. But it's time for me to move on. It would be damaging to my recovery to stay on. I'm not blaming the band for my problem - I am an addict. There are people who can be in bands and stay clean, but I'm not one of them."

It is pretty much confirmed now that Madonna has adopted a one-year-old boy in Malawi.
Yohane Banda confirmed to reporters that the singer had chosen to adopt his child David a week after her publicist Liz Rosenberg denied the claims.
He added: "I am the father of David, who has been adopted. I am very very happy because as you can see there is poverty in this village and I know he will be very well looked after in America."
Following his comments, a spokeswoman for Madonna has now confirmed that an official statement will be made in the next 48 hours, reports BBC NEWS.
