That's terrible. The Quietest Place on Earth was a beautiful record. You will be missed in the post-metal community, Chris Torpy!

"Sometime early saturday morning, Our brother, singer and best friend, Chris Torpy, took his own
life. We cannot adequately express the loss, and the hurt we are feeling at this time. And in no way
ever presume to understand what his family are going through right now.

Chris was the soul of the band from the very begin, he was a true artist, an amazing lyricist and
the best vocalist I have ever seen. He was genuine and loved his friends, he was a better friend to
any of us than we deserved, and he was always the first to reach out to people who were hurting. He
struggled with his demons for a long time, he used music as a way to exorcise them, sometimes we
could really hear the pain and fury in his voice at practise or at a show. He always lived life to
the fullest and pushed the boundaries of his own existence. These words feel cheap, and don't in
anyway do his remarkable, although short, life. He will be missed by many, but never forgotten. We
Lost The Sea are blessed to have his talent and his voice recorded for us to always remember him as
he was, for who he was.

We Lost the Sea at this stage will NOT be pulling out of the This Will Destroy You show at the
Annandale. We would like to play this show to honour our fallen brother. Wether or not we are able
to do it remains to be seen. We have not talked about or made any decisions about the future of the
band after this show. Chris is irreplaceable, but I know he wouldn't of wanted the band to stop. So
I personally will be looking to making more music in his name.

If anyone is struggling with life, or everything just seems too much. Please reach out to someone.
Contact Beyond Blue, talk to a friend, talk to a parent, TALK TO US. Please don't think that you are
alone.

We'd like to thank everyone for the support and love we have received already. It means a lot to us.
If anyone has anything the would like us to pass on to his family, or would like to know funeral
arrangements please email us at welostthesea@gmail.com

Chris we will always love you and I feel that the best way to pay tribute to you is via your own
words.

'And this lucid way of rest is how I want to remain.
Converging through the void, finally passing on.
Contently, with grace.'

Much Love

Mark, Nathaniel, Turtle, Brendon, Kieran & Mathew and all the We Lost The Sea family. xo"

Didn't know this band. A Quiet Place is pretty beautiful, and Chris seems to have been outstanding.

Well of course suicide is selfish. But humanity is selfish as a species. You can't blame someone at the end of their tether to want to take the first way out that they see. I ended up sparking a discussion on this a few weeks back on Facebook with some friends when I said that only people who don't kill themselves but don't seek help are the ones who truly hate themselves, people who commit suicide clearly love themselves enough to want to end the pain and find a way out. Which, yes, may be considered selfish but how many people in the same situation wouldn't do the same?

for the sake of respect for someone who's dead please don't turn this into a fucking suicide debate

if anything the circumstance around his death is none of our business so let's leave scrutiny to those directly involved, if anyone at all

These guys have been a mainstay in the local scene for years but I never got to see them properly. As I was perusing their page last night searching for upcoming gigs of theirs I could attend, Chris was taking his own life.

That's heavy. RIP

Never heard of the band, but RIP.

Also, never judge a person without putting yourself in his/her skin. Yes, suicide is not the way to go, but some people have to endure hell in a daily basis, and sometimes that unfortunately breaks one's spirit.
