The Quireboys have parted ways with their founding frontman, Spike.

The British rock stalwarts confirmed the news in a short statement, released with a black and white photograph of the new line-up. They wrote: "The Quireboys have parted company with Spike and will continue as a five-piece with all other current members."

With the band appearing to have fired Spike, who founded The Quireboys in 1984, the singer has responded with a statement of his own:

"Just to clarify, I have received a letter from three of my band members informing me that my services are no longer required to sing or perform with them.

"I will release an official statement shortly but for now, my sincere apologies go out to you all and I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all my fans who are supporting me through this difficult time.

"Many of you I have known for years and consider my friends. Thank you for your love and support. Rest assured, I will see you at the bar very soon.

"The Quireboys founder, only original member and singer, God bless, Spike x"
