Tame Impala Lose Bassist Nick Allbrook


Tame Impala’s bassist, Nick Allbrook, has left the band. He played his last show with them at Perth’s Belvoir Amphitheatre on Saturday night, and will be replaced by Cam Avery, who plays in Pond, a band fronted by Allbrook.

A post on Tame Impala’s website stated that Allbrook was “hopping off the Tame Impala band wagon so that he can try and screw his head back on, and make an attempt to assimilate back into society. A task the rest of us fear we will one day have to perform….”
Allbrook told NME, “All bands and projects and stuff will keep going, it’s just hard to keep them all going if you’re touring all the time. The only bad part will be not seeing my mates every day. I love them more than anything.”

Tame Impala continue to tour last year’s Lonerism, and will play this weekend’s Primavera Sound Festival. Check out their tour dates below, followed by a Pitchfork.tv film of the band performing “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards”.
