The band's vocalist has confirmed that the British electronica group decided to call it quits after they worked together for 15 years, saying the band had become 'jaded' by their lengthy tours.
Legendary British dance act Faithless have split after 15 years. The trio, Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo Armstrong, formed in 1995 and went on to rule the club scene in Europe with massive hits including "Insomnia" and "We Come 1".
Keyboard player Sister Bliss recently hinted the bandmates had become "jaded" by their lengthy tours, and now Maxi has confirmed that the group has split. In a statement on Faithless' website, he writes, "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 you, 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."
"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. You'll be in my heart forever. Listen for my voice in future lifetimes, I only grow in your shadow, you're the sun to me."
