RAZORLIGHT singer Johnny Borrell has slammed reports the band are on the verge of splitting after cancelling the tail end of their American tour and all of their British shows.

The GOLDEN TOUCH star insists the band is still going strong and his recent walkout midway through a Denver, Colorado gig was a one-off.

Borrell tells TIME OUT magazine, "This band is f**king brilliant and it is not in a state of peril! The only thing I'm interested in is making good music, and you can't make good music when you're f**ked up.

"If I'd done what I did on anything like a regular basis, there would be no Razorlight. It was just an emotional fancy dress competition. And I won."
