Scissor Sisters will no longer perform with Paddy Boom as the drummer has been confirmed to split with the band.
An official statement saying that Scissor Sisters have split with their current drummer, Paddy Boom, has been posted by the band on their official website. "We would like our fans and friends to know that we have amicably parted ways with the original Scissor drummer Paddy Boom," they announce.
"He will no longer be on stage with us but he will always be our sister," the Grammy Awards-nominated band explain further about the future of their relationship with Boom after the break-up. "Don't worry, we are hard at work on our new record and we can't wait to see you all soon," they add.
In related news, the band will reportedly change their musical direction from disco, gleam rock, and pop to a reggae sound on their next project. The album doesn't have a title and release date yet but some new songs that are expected to be featured on the forthcoming record have been unveiled during an intimate gig at New York's Mercury Lounge earlier this week. The just-revealed singles include "Who's Your Money", "Major for You", and "Singularity".
