The Prodigy star Keith Flint has died aged 49.
He was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex, this morning.
The band, who were due to tour the US in May, confirmed his death in a statement, remembering Flint as a “true pioneer, innovator and legend”.
In a post on The Prodigy’s official Instagram account, bandmate Liam added: “I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend.
“I’m shell-shocked, angry, confused and heart broken.”
The Prodigy gained worldwide fame following their albums “Music for the jilted generation” and “The fat of the land” during the 1990’s.
The band had a string of hits, but are best known for their no.1 hit Firestarter.
Last September Flint dropped into Black Tom’s in Tinahely during a visit to the area for a wedding.
