In 2012, Heeley ended up passing away at the age of 39 from breast cancer, which led to the departure of Smith-Skinner, and led to the temporary dissolution of Syren. After a few months of silence, Bennett resurrected Syren with a completely different lineup, although this edition of Syren would only exist for a few months, and Syren played their final show in January of 2014 before officially disbanding. « hide
