British dance band Faithless have devastated fans with the news they're splitting up after their current tour ends.

The INSOMNIA stars - headed by charismatic rapper MAXI JAZZ - had already announced they will never perform live again, but now they've stunned followers by announcing their latest album, NO ROOTS, will be their last.

Faithless member SISTER BLISS accidentally unleashed the revelation on London's CAPITAL FM radio station, and insiders at the band's label BMG have confirmed the premature announcement is true.

One says, "We'll be sad to see them go, especially as they are now more successful than ever. But it's what they want to do and we can't stand in their way."
