Ou Est Le Swimming Pool singer Charlie Haddon committed suicide today, according to Dutch news sources.

Haddon took his life following the London trio's performance at Belgium's Pukkelpop festival on Friday.

It was the second tragic event of the weekend at Pukkelpop. On Thursday, Michael Been, formerly of the Call and father to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club frontman Robert Leven Been, died backstage following a heart attack.

Is this serious?

'Dance the Way I Feel' is one of my biggest guilty pleasures of the year. Soooooooooooooooo catchy, even if you wanna hate it.

Deviant.

"On August 20th, Charles Haddon, the lead singer of the band, took his own life after a performance at Pukkelpop, Belgium. He did so by jumping off "a mast", backstage in the parking area." - Wikipedia

Holy shit.

I dunno either, but that's really intense to kill yourself right after doing a show. Eventually
someone is going to do it DURING a show.

Edit: DAYUMM.

I read this wrong, I originally thought this meant he had committed suicide because of the performance.

RIP.

Fuck, I love Dance the Way I Feel. But, considering the lyrics, he was obviously a depressed guy.

Maybe people should wait until they're legends before killing themselves, like Elliott Smith.

Apparently a member of the band had jumped in the crowd after their show. Landed on some girl who had to be taken away with an ambulance. After that the singer jumps to death. Don't know if the two are related..
