Keith Flint, the iconic frontman of British electronic group The Prodigy, was found dead at his home in Essex on Monday morning. He was 49 years old.
The Essex police confirmed it was called to the address in Dunmow, Essex, regarding “concerns for the welfare of a man,” but the 49-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. No suspicions have been raised.
The band has issued a heartbreaking statement regarding Flint’s passing:
Bandmate Liam Howlett posted to Instagram, saying Flint “took his own life over the weekend.”
“I’m shell shocked, f***** angry, confused and heart broken,” Howlett wrote.
Known for his punk look, piercings and irreverent attitude, Flint fronted some of The Prodigy’s biggest hits, like “Firestarter” and “Breathe”. Both singles featured on The Prodigy’s best-known album, “The Fat of the Land”, which was released in 1997 and has sold millions of copies worldwide.
