Keith Flint’s death ruled suicide, The Prodigy cancel all ‘No Tourists’ tour dates
To much shock and dismay across the world, The Prodigy frontman and frontman Keith Flint passed away in the early hours of the morning on March 4. His death was suspected to be a suicide by his bandmates, although that can now be officially confirmed as the autopsy reports have officially confirmed the news.
Flint’s death has been ruled a suicide as a result of hanging, the BBC reports. The coroner also confirmed an earlier police statement that Flint’s death is not being considered suspicious. The toxicology report is not set to come back until summer.
Following Flint’s death, The Prodigy have chosen to cancel all forthcoming shows “with immediate effect” to mourn the loss of their brother. The band was about to embark on their first headline tour in 10 years in support of their seventh studio album, No Tourists, which landed back in November of 2018. Along with a slew of North American tour dates, the band was notably set to hit Glastonbury Festival, where the three-piece outfit made history in 1997 as the first electronic dance band ever to headline.
Flint first joined the Prodigy as a dancer, but he soon became the lead singer as the group prepped their 1997 album The Fat of the Land, which produced the hits “Breathe,” “Firestarter” and “Smack My Bitch Up.” May he rest in peace.
