Fickle Friends have revealed that lead guitarist Chris Hall is no longer in the band after five years of working together.

Chris Hall has been part of the band since the start. They first emerged in 2014 with singles "Play", and "For You", before going on to sign to Polydor and release "Swim".

The guitarist announced news of his exit from the band on his Instagram last night (15 January), "Amicably, sparing you the gritty details, this is an open post to announce and inform you that I am no longer part of the band Fickle Friends, the decision coming around a month ago."

Hall continues, "Having time to contemplate over the holiday period, I am deeply saddened by the reality of [the] situation. We unfortunately couldn't agree on a number of issues that would have resulted in us continuing working together."

This morning the band have confirmed the news on their socials, "Change is never easy. We have had the most amazing 5 years working with Chris, it’s with great sadness that we have decided to part ways. He is a true talent and amazing guy and we wish him all the best with his next project!"
