James Buttery departs for pastures new...

A group in a continual state of evolution, Darkstar released new album 'News From Nowhere' last year via Warp.

An emphatic return, it was quickly followed by two remix EPs and some of the band's strongest live performances to date. In a short missive earlier today, though, Darkstar confirmed that vocalist James Buttery is set to live.

Seemingly working on new material, the group once again focusses on initial production duo James Young and Aiden Whalley.

Here's the message in full:

From the Warp 25th birthday this weekend and onwards we are reverting back to the original lineup of Aiden and myself, we have been in the studio writing an album and rehearsing a new live set that we'll debut on Saturday. Recording and rehearsing new stuff has been exciting and we look forward to sharing a new record in 2015. Until then we'll be road testing loads of new ideas over the next few months live. We'd like to thank James B for his time and effort he put into recording and touring with Darkstar and wish him all the best with future endeavours.
