Drum player Chris Pennie has announced his departure from Coheed And Cambria to focus on other creative projects.

Pennie explained his decision to leave the US prog-rock band after four years behind a drum kit was due to him wanting to explore other musical endeavours and not because there had been a falling out.

"I am very thankful for the years that I shared the stage with the guys and want to thank the amazing, supportive fans that I've met on tour, but there are a lot of exciting projects on the horizon, in addition to Return to Earth and Fight Mannequins, that I fee require my absolute 100 per cent commitment and attention," he said.

"I feel that this is the right time to make that happen."

It's been a tough few months for the band as only in August they parted ways with bass guitar player Michael Todd.

Of Pennie's departure, the band said: "Tough decision were made today that will shape the band for the coming years.

"We extend our deepest appreciation to Chris Pennie for an incredible journey."
