Faithless are set to split up after their current European tour ends.

Rapper Maxi Jazz made the announcement on the band's website, Faithless.co.uk. Their last gig is scheduled for April 8 at London's O2 Academy Brixton.

Jazz explained: "After 15 years and six albums I think we've probably made our collective point by now and that it's time to close the book and return to the library."

He added: "We've had, with you [fans], the most unbelievable, epic and moving experience, stretching over years and tens of thousands of miles. Joyful, exhilarating and empowering, we never for a moment thought an affair could last this long."

The dance band, completed by DJs/producers Sister Bliss and Rollo, formed in 1995 in London. They were festival staples and released their last studio album, 'The Dance', last year.
