Keith Flint, The Prodigy vocalist, dead at 49

Keith Flint, singer in the British electronic group The Prodigy, has died, the band said in a statement Monday. He was 49.

"It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint," said a statement on the band's Facebook page. "A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed."

The Prodigy was founded in Braintree, Essex, in 1990 by Liam Howlett.

"The news is true, I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend, I’m shell shocked, f***** angry, confused and heart broken ..... r.i.p brother," Howlett wrote on the band's Instagram page Monday.

The group, comprised of Howlett, Maxim (whose real name is Keith Palmer), and Flint released an album in November and was due to go on tour with stops in New Orleans, Chicago and New York in May.

Flint, who often spiked his hair into two horns and wore heavy eye makeup while performing, was the vocalist for the band's two number one singles on UK charts, "Firestarter" and "Breathe."

Fellow UK band Kasabian called Flint a "beautiful man, incredible pioneer."

"Heartbroken," the band wrote in a statement. "Rest in Peace Brother."
