The band said in a statement: "To think Stu won't be joining us on stage anymore is a hard thought to face and although his passing is tragic, we hope to draw some positive from this difficult time.

"As a band, we are honoured and privileged to have shared the experiences we've had with Stu.

"We will be releasing the single, Former Mining Town, and dedicating it to Stuart. He was hugely proud of the album and this track in particular.

"Not only have we lost a rock legend but also a best friend and the heart of our band. The stage will not be the same without him."

The single is being released via download from online retailers or from the band's website from 25 July.
