Mallory Knox frontman Mikey Chapman has left the band after almost a decade and three albums.
Mallory - who also announced a UK headline tour today - will continue, with bassist Sam Douglas taking over lead vocal duties.
In a statement, they said:
“After nearly 9 years together, today we announce that Mikey has decided to part ways with Mallory Knox. As a band, we respect his decision and wish him well for the future.
2018 marks a brand new chapter for the band and we're excited to be continuing Mallory Knox with Sam taking the lead on vocals. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes writing & recording new music. We are very keen for you to hear it & you won't be waiting long.
