Faithless Announce Split

News has just broken that the legendary dance duo, Faithless, have decided to call an end to things and split after their current tour.

Formed in 1993, Rollo Armstrong, Sister Bliss and Maxi Jazz have become one of the UK's top contemporary dance acts. They have sold over 12 million records worldwide and are famous for such hits as 'Insomnia' and 'God is a DJ'.

Announcing the news via a statement on Faithless' official website www.faithless.co.uk vocalist Maxi Jazz had the following to say.

    “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. Or be this powerful. Never thought for a moment that the end of this journey would be left to us either...

    Quite naturally people grow, change and leave the things of youth behind them. You've not only brought us with you, but introduced us to y'children too! What're you like..?

    The album 'The Dance Never Ends' was written and produced for you, as a thank you, but also as a goodbye.. 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.

    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. But, 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!!

    Once again, whether you bought or downloaded a cd, came to a show or told your mates about us... Whether from the beginning or just last week..

    Thank you.

    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.

    One Love.

    Maxi”

While this news may come as a shock to many fans, Faithless admitted last year that they would be considering their future following their current tour. Faithless will play two shows at London's Brixton Academy next month as they promote their current album 'The Dance Never Ends'. Maxi has described their current tour, as well as the album, as a “thank you” to the fans.
