Ou Est Le Swimming Pool have said they are “deeply saddened” over the death of singer Charles Haddon.

The 22-year-old committed suicide shortly after the band’s performance at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium on Friday (August 20).

In a statement, they paid tribute to the singer and thanked fans for their support.

“We are all so deeply saddened to confirm that our friend Charlie Haddon passed away,” the statement said.

“The singer had just performed with his band, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. He was 22 years old. The London three piece were in Europe playing a number of festivals before embarking on a tour of Australia as part of the Parklife festival next month.

“Charles Alexander Haddon R.I.P. Thanks for all your messages of support. X.”

Police believe Haddon jumped from a telecommunications mast located in a parking area at the festival.

The London band were due to release their debut album in October, as well as embark on a UK tour.
