It may be the end of the road for the current line-up of UK band James with lead singer Tim Booth announcing that he’ll be moving on after the group’s December tour.
A posting on the James website confirms the split with Booth saying that the time is right.
“I want to stop while we are on top,” Booth said in his message. “To leave great memories knowing that I feel proud of just about everything we have done. And I am leaving because it feels like THE RIGHT TIME. This is an intuitive decision enabling me to let go of a huge commitment and make space for something new to come in.”
The six remaining members are said to be continuing with no plans mentioned as yet.
James has a history which spans 20 years and gained notoriety with their 1993 single “Laid”.
