In a statement posted on Twitter, Milan said: “I have decided to leave Clean Bandit. It was a decision that took me a very long time to reach, but it is the right one. So many people have made these last four years unbelievable and I am so thankful for it all”.

In their own statement, the remaining members of the band said: “It is with great sadness that we must announce that our performances of ‘Tears’ over the summer were Neil’s last shows with Clean Bandit. He told us recently that he has decided to leave”.

They went on: “We have had a wonderful ride together and we are extremely excited to see what he does next. We are also very much looking forward to our upcoming shows and to sharing our new music with you. Thank you all for your support during this time, and thank you Neil for being part of this amazing journey. We will miss you a lot on this next chapter and we wish you the best of luck for the future”.
