We Came As Romans have revealed how their lead singer Kyle Pavone died last month.
Kyle, 28, had spent a week in a Michigan hospital when he died suddenly on 25 August.
In a statement posted on twitter, the metalcore band revealed that Kyle had an accidental overdose. In his memory, the surviving singers have launched The Kyle Pavone Foundation, which aims to offer support for those in the music industry.
The band said: ‘On Saturday August 25, we lost our son, our brother, our best friend and our band mate to an accidental overdose.
‘The opposite of addiction is connection. If you are feeling disconnected or lost, there is help. Please take action, whether that is talking to your families and friends, meeting with a counselor or joining a support group.
‘If you are a friend or family member or someone who is struggling, do not be silent! If you are an artist in need of support through your struggle, we have created the Kyle Pavone Foundation in Kyle’s honour to help.’
