Less than two months after bassist Lindsay Coulson announced he would be departing from King King, drummer Wayne Proctor is now leaving the band. King King announced the move on its Facebook page, “Drummer Wayne Proctor is to move on from King King to pursue other interests. We would like to thank him for all of his work in his time with the band and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavours! King King’s new drummer will be revealed in the next few days so stay tuned friends!”
Proctor issued a statement about the decision on his Facebook page,
“Yep my time in King King is at an end, so proud to have a been a major part of the rise and success of the band and hats off to all involved. It truly was a combined band effort that got us where we have got to today. Good luck to all the new members in King King.” Proctor added, “I’m now looking forward to writing, performing, mixing and producing some new exciting and fresh sounding music. A huge, huge thank you to all the fans for all your continued love and support, it does mean the world to me, you guys really are the best! See you all soon!”
Proctor had been the longest tenured member of the band other than founder/frontman Alan Nimmo.
