Teenage Fanclub have announced that founding member Gerald Love will be leaving the band. The much-loved Bellshill indie group recently re-issued the albums from their Creation Records years on vinyl, and are set to play in Japan and Australia at the start of 2019.

Today it was announced that founding member Gerald Love will be leaving the line up after a show at London’s Electric Ballroom on November 15th.

He will still be part of Teenage Fanclub for their three shows at he Barrowlands on Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31th October.

A note from Teenage Fanclub reads: “Following discussions within the band going back several months there is a continuing and sadly unresolvable difference of opinion on whether the band should proceed with proposed touring plans, so after that London show Gerry will be separating from the band, and Teenage Fanclub will be continuing without him. The band wish Gerry all the best in his future musical endeavours.”

The band had previously announced they will be re-joined by former members Brendan O’Hare and Paul Quinn at the October and November shows.

Here’s the note in full:
