Lostprophets Break Up As Singer Faces Trial

Lostprophets announced that they are breaking up. Their frontman Ian Watkins was arrested last year and charged for allegedly conspiring with a woman to rape a one-year-old child and other crimes and will be going to trial in November.

This week the other members of the band posted on Facebook that they are breaking up Lostprophets, but their statement leaves the door open to them working together under a different name.

They tell 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."
