It's surprising that they've managed to drag on for a year, what with their singer Ian Watkins being accused of raping a baby, but finally Lostprophets have accepted they're a lost cause:
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.Ian Watkins has denied the charges against him; his trial is due to start on November 25th.
