That is very sad news, I used to listen to them a lot and still think they are ok.

R.I.P., buddy. This is one of my closest friends' favorite bands, just told him the news. I was never a big fan, but their first single is definitely an old favorite of mine.

Condolences to the whole band itself, and to his family and friends.
