Foals have announced the departure of keyboard player Edwin Congreave.

The band – now a trio – announced via social media that last month’s All Points East show was Congreave’s last with the group.

“After 15 years of sweet music making & surfing the globe together he’s decided to hang up his musical boots to pursue other avenues of life,” they explain, adding they’ve “been writing music as a three piece, which we cannot wait to share with you.”

In his own statement, Congreave revealed he’s about to begin “a postgraduate degree in economics at Cambridge, and I hope in the next couple of years to join others in technical efforts to mitigate the imminent climate catastrophe. The future’s not what it used to be, as a good friend once sang.”
