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
