The group, who have been making a racket since 1997, announced the news on their Facebook page, saying: “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.”

X Factor At The Union Chapel: Lostprophets, King Blues And The Black Out

BEFORE Simon Cowell brought us his finishing school for music with modules in X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Pop Idol – with special points for anyone able to shorten their name into something that can fit into text message (Jedward, Subo etc.) – there was talent.

Here’s the news: there still is talent and new music. It’s just not on the tell any more. It’s at the 2009 Mencap Little Noise Sessions at the Union Chapel in London, in the form of Ian Watkins of Lostprophets, King Blues and The Black Out. We were there. We’ve got pictures:
