Kurt Dahle, founding member of The New Pornographers, has announced his departure from the band.
“Kurt Dahle is leaving the New Pornographers. It has been a great 15 years playing with an amazing drummer, singer and performer. We wish him the best,” the band says in a statement. “Everything is still full steam ahead with the band and we look forward to continued rocking and singing of songs.”
The New Pornographers released a new album, Brill Bruisers, two weeks ago, and they kick off a North American tour next month.
