Faithless split up
Thursday 17 March 2011
Faithless are splitting up.
The 'Insomnia' dance group announced they will go their separate ways after 15 years together after their preset tour ends on April 8.
In a statement on their website, singer Maxi Jazz wrote: "After 15 years and six albums I think we've probably made our collective point by now and that it's time to close the book and return to the library.
"We've had, with our fans, the most unbelievable, epic and moving experience, stretching over years and tens of thousands of miles. Joyful, exhilarating and empowering, we never for a moment thought an affair could last this long."
The group is completed by DJ Sister Bliss and producer Rollo, who does not appear with the band for live shows.
Faithless released their first single, 'Salva Mea', in 1995 and quickly became one of the most popular electronic acts in the UK. Their single 'Insomnia' became s a top three hit in 1996 and they had seven top ten hits in total, including 'God Is A DJ' and 'We Come 1'. They group's released their last album 'The Dance' last year.
Continuing his statement, Maxi added: "Like when writing a song, you always just 'know' when it's finished. This is and was the "Thank YOU And Goodbye' tour and to be truthful, I really hope you just pick up the ball of your life.. And RUN WITH IT!! (sic)"
The group will play their final show at London's O2 Academy Brixton on April 8.
