Band "can no longer continue making or performing music as Lostprophets".

After almost a year since their frontman Ian Watkins was arrested on a string of charges (including conspiracy to rape a child and producing and distributing indecent images of children), Lostprophets have released a short statement confirming they're no longer a band.

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 is currently in custody awaiting trial, which is due to start in November.
