Seminal industrial music artists Godflesh has officially called it quits following the group's sudden cancellation of their North American tour with California's High On Fire and Australia's Halo.

"Justin suffered a nervous breakdown prior to boarding his flight to the US. Unable to make the trip, nevermind perform a two month long tour, Justin has decided to call it quits," a statement on the Godflesh website reports. "Godflesh is done for."

"How this affects other projects, tours and recordings is not known. It seems likely that everything will be shelved until a later date. Again, this is official and confirms some of the rumors floating around."

Godflesh's break up comes at an unfortunate time, when press and fans alike devoured the recently released Hymns as if it were the real follow-up to the lauded Streetcleaner album. In Godflesh's 12-plus year career, the band put out seven full-lengths, 10 EP's and was featured on numerous compilations. Godflesh also appeared on the acclaimed Hideaway soundtrack for the Brett Leonard film, starring Jeff Goldblum and Alicia Silverstone.

It's unknown at this stage if drummer Ted Parsons (ex-Prong) and bassist Paul Raven (Killing Joke) will continue to work together.
