Scissor Sisters have announced the departure of their drummer, claiming "he will always be our sister".
After seven years of playing in the band, it has been confirmed that Paddy Boom is no longer part of the official line-up.
A statement posted on the group's website reads: "We would like our fans and friends to know that we have amicably parted ways with the original drummer Paddy Boom.
"He will no longer be on stage with us but he will always be our sister."
The band reassured fans the change will not affect progress on their forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2006's Ta-Dah.
They added: "Don't worry, we are hard at work on our new record and we can't wait to see you all soon."
