Bloc Party bassist Gordon Moakes confirms he's left the band

Bloc Party bassist Gordon Moakes has confirmed he has left the band, leaving the indie rockers now down to just two members. 

Moakes, who had been a founding member of the band, confirmed his departure over the weekend on Twitter, revealing that he would now be focusing on Young Legionnaire, his project with The Automatic's Paul Mullen. 

He wrote:



Moakes joins drummer Matt Tong in departing from the band, Tong left in 2013, around the time the band ended touring in support of fourth album Four and announced they would be on hiatus. 

Earlier in the week, frontman Kele Okereke confirmed that the band, which now currently consists of himself and guitarist Russell Lissack, had begun work on new material. It's not known if either Tong or Moakes have been replaced as yet.
