Following the untimely death of the Prodigy frontman, Keith Flint, the band have decided to pull from their scheduled festival appearances.

The band have decided to exit four festival appearances put on by Danny Wimmer Presents. The scheduled festivals include Jacksonville’s Welcome To Rockville on May 3, Rockingham’s Epicenter on May 10, Columbus’ Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival on May 18 and Chicago Open Air Presents on May 19.

Finally, Papa Roach will fill the slot at the Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival.

“We’re honored to step in for our brothers in The Prodigy at Sonic Temple on Saturday night,” Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix says. “They are such an influential band for us. We’re gonna celebrate, it’s gonna be a great night. We love you guys and we can’t wait to see you out there.”

The announcements follow the band’s decision to cancel all forthcoming tour dates this spring. Originally, the trio were set to embark on a short string of U.S. dates this May including the aforementioned festivals. The band announced the gigs in February, revealing it was their first headlining U.S. tour in 10 years. However, the Prodigy recently took to Twitter to announce that all scheduled forthcoming shows will be cancelled.

Flint passed away last week at the age of 49. Earlier today, the coroners’ report confirmed Flint’s cause of death was a suicide by hanging, according to the BBC.  

While they are still awaiting toxicology reports to come in, they have determined the cause of death is not suspicious.

Our thoughts are with Flint’s family and friends at this time.
