A statement issued by the Camden, North London band's publicist states, "After speaking with the late Charles Haddon's family, remaining band members Joe Hutchinson and Caan Capan have decided to proceed with the original schedule for the release of the record they planned with Charles."
The album's release will be followed by a single, 'The Key,' on Oct. 10.
Haddon, 22, died last Friday, Aug. 20, when he jumped off a telecommunications mast backstage at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. Speculation followed that Haddon had taken his own life after fearing he had seriously injured a girl when a stage dive went awry during the band's performance at the festival earlier in the day.
The statement added, "Joe and Caan would like to thank everyone for their incredible support and best wishes during this extremely difficult time and ask that their privacy now be respected whilst they now take some time away."
