Lostprophets Announce Split
It's been almost a year since the shocking arrest of Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins on various charges - including conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child under 13. Today, after 15 years of being in a band together, the rest of the band members posted the following message on their Facebook page:
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
Watkins' trial is set to start in late November.
