The mohawked frontman of The Prodigy, who influenced many of the biggest names in the Electronic scene today, Keith Flint, passed away earlier this month.

The 49-year-old who sang lead vocals on the hits “Firestarter” and “Breathe,” took his own life and was found dead in Essex, England.

Revealing the news in an Instagram post that took many in the world of music by shock, band member Liam Howlett took to The Prodigy’s official handle and wrote, “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, fuckin angry, confused and heartbroken ….. r.i.p brother. Liam.”


Keith Charles Flint was born in September 1969, in Redbridge, in East London, and grew up in Braintree, a suburb in Essex. His time with The Prodigy started off as a dancer and performer even before he took to the mic and became one of their lead singers. Starting off in the early ’90s, Prodigy found a whole lot of success with their third studio album, The Fat of the Land. It was “Firestarter” the first single off this very album on which Flint sang and that also marked a change in the direction the band was taking, mixing rave tunes with rock music, and shot them to stardom.

The Prodigy released their seventh studio album No Tourists in 2018 and were embarking on an extensive tour through 2019 including multiple dates across North America which the band was doing after many years. But after Flint’s passing the band announced that all forthcoming tour dates stand canceled with immediate effect.

Following the tragic death of Keith Flint all forthcoming Prodigy shows will be cancelled with immediate effect.

The entire industry came together to mourn this huge loss. With many such as Skrillex revealing that they might not even have been in the Electronic music space if it weren’t for the inspiration from The Prodigy and specifically Flint himself.
