By now, you likely know that Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been arrested in the United Kingdom on a number of sex-related charges.
Specifically, he’s accused of being a pederast with a penchant for “extreme” animal pornography.
Now, the band has spoken out about Watkins’ perverse behavior (he’s accused of trying to have sex with kids — one of them, an infant not even two years old) in a collective statement posted on their site.
“Following charges made today against Ian Watkins, we find ourselves in a state of shock,” says the band.
I wonder if they had any idea, really. I mean, they spend time on a bus with this dude, have practically lived with him. If they had no idea, it just goes to show…people can have dark secrets even those that know them best would never realize.
“We are learning about the details of the investigation along with you,” says the band. “It is a difficult time for us and our families, and we want to thank our fans for their support as we seek answers.”
This band will never sell another record. Ever.
