Manchester trio, Amplifier have announced the departure of bassist and founding member, Neil Mahony via an official statement:

“His real strength lies in his ability to generate great clouds of effects soundscapes, especially when improvising, through his bespoke and esoteric collection of pedals that we all built up together over the years.”

There is currently no change to their live commitments at this stage so we can only assume that a replacement is in the wings and that he/she will be just as great a bassist. Amplifier’s European tour with Anathema is due to start in Poland on 21 April 2012, ending at the London Koko on 03 May 2012.
