They've called it quits after 15 years together…
Faithless are splitting once their current tour is complete, Maxi Jazz has announced.
The vocalist revealed the news on the group’s website and compared the decision to writing a song: “You always just 'know' when it's finished.”
“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,” he explained. “We've had, with you, the most unbelievable, epic and moving experience, stretching over years and 10 of thousands of miles. Joyful, exhilarating and empowering, we never for a moment thought an affair could last this long.”
The Insomnia hitmaker added that the group’s current tour is their way to farewell fans and thank them for their support. “The tour schedule has been particularly hectic as we attempt to visit as many territories as there are people who wanna see us. And say thank you.”
He continued: “If I devoted the rest of my life to the task, I could never thank you enough. I have memories that will still be with me in my next life.”
The three-piece, made up of Maxi, Sister Bliss and Rollo, released their sixth album, The Dance, last year. Their final gig takes place at London's O2 Academy Brixton on 8 April.
