As if the untimely death of We Came as Romans singer Kyle Pavone isn’t enough tragedy today, Weedeater has announced that their drummer, Kyle Denogean, has passed away. Details are scarce, but Denogean had played with the band in 2017 and this year, and the band just wrapped up a tour last month. The band said in an emotional Facebook post that they’re not sure of the cause of death and asked for some time to grieve. Here’s the band’s statement:
There is no easy way to say this. Our dear friend and bandmate Carlos Denogean passed away yesterday. It is with a heavy heart and intense sadness that we bring you this unfortunate news. He left this world far too soon and will be missed immensely by all of us. Anyone that knew Carlos was enamored by his kindness and his warm personality. He was an incredibly talented musician and a real joy to be around. He brought something truly special to the band and we all loved working with him. We simply cannot express how devastated we are by this loss. We don’t know any details at this time and we ask that you please leave us to grieve now along with Carlos’ family. Thank you for all of your kind wishes. Cherish what you have while you have it.
We’ll share more details as we get them, but it goes without saying that our thoughts are with the band and Denogean’s family and friends.
