Où Est Le Swimming Pool singer Charles Haddon commits suicide
The singer of the promising English synthpop act Où Est Le Swimming Pool, Charles Haddon, has committed suicide, right after the group performed at Belgium's Pukkelpop festival yesterday. The London three-piece were in Europe playing a number of shows. Haddon took his own life by climbing to the top of a satellite mast in a backstage parking area and jumping off. The news was announced last night by concert organisor Chokri Mahassine.

The Camden, London, based band have released three singles to date. In 2009 the band released and re-released their debut single, "Dance the Way I Feel" before supporting La Roux on their UK tour. In 2010 the band released their second single, "These New Knights", and third, "Jackson's Last Stand". After issuing their third single the group had announced that their debut album "Christ Died For Our Synths" would be released in October. It's unclear what will happen now. So far the band has not issued a statement.

The first rumours said that keyboard player Joel Hutchinson had committed suicide. Hutchinson had jumped into the public during the last song "Dance the way I feel" landing on a girl that had to be taken to hospital. But then it became clear that singer Charles Haddon was the one who had died. The band seemed very distresed after that incident and had asked the boyfriend of the victim to pass on all necessary contact details in order to arrange a financial compensation if needed. It's not sure if this had anything to do with Haddon's act a few moments later.

An autopsy will have to reveal if the singer was under the influence of drugs or not when committing suicide. Here's a video shot during the band's performance yesterday.
