Following the child abuse allegations of incarcerated frontman Ian Watkins, Lostprophets have decided to call it quits. You can read a statement from the band below:
“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”
This news comes in the wake of Watkins being placed on suicide watch, while he awaits trial.
