The Darkness have lost their second-most distinctive member, with Slash-to-Justin's-Axl Frankie Poullain packing up his tache and quitting the band.

Of course, of course: it's musical differences, says the statement:

"With immediate effect, bass player, Frankie Poullain, is no longer a member of The Darkness. Remaining members have cited musical differences as the reason for his departure. A replacement will be announced within coming months."

They already know who they want to step into the bass player role, but they need the next few months for him to get his moustache up to speed.
