The body of Flint was discovered at his Essex home and Chelmsford Coroner's Court heard he died from hanging. Police attended the singer's home at the time and found there were no suspicious circumstances.
Following Keith's death, the band cancelled all of their planned tour dates, including a slot at Glastonbury festival.
They tweeted: "It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time."
