Bedouin Soundclash has lost one of its founding members.

Drummer Pat Pengelly has decided to leave the trio, according to a release from the band's management.

Frontman Jay Malinowski and bassist Eon Sinclair will continue on in the group.

"All three are grateful for each other's friendship and contribution to the band, and will continue to support each other moving forward," read the statement.

The Kingston, Ont., band released its third album, "Street Gospels," in 2007. Their debut, "Root Fire," came out in 2001.

The band will go ahead without Pengelly for their Feb. 7 date at the Hillside Inside Festival in Guelph, Ont., and for their five-date festival tour of Australia at the end of the month.

The band's spokesperson couldn't confirm who would round out the group for those performances.
