Lostprophets split

In an unsurprising development, Lostprophets are no more.

On a post on their official Facebook, the band - minus Ian Watkins - noted that it was something they "thought privately for some time" and that they "can no longer continue making or performing music as Lostprophets".

Whether this opens it up to a new band with all five members remains to be seen. Although given the hearing against Watkins has been adjourned until Oct 14th, it's unlikely anything will happen this year.

The full message is as follows:

To our fans:

After nearly a year of coming to terms with our heartache, we finally feel ready to announce publicly what we have thought privately for some time. We can no longer continue making or performing music as Lostprophets. Your love and support over the past 15 years has been tremendous, and we'll be forever grateful for all you've given us. As we look forward to the next phase of our lives, we can only hope to be surrounded by people as devoted and inspiring as you guys have been.

Jamie, Lee, Luke, Mike, and Stu

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
