Jason Rosenthal Dead
2013-08-14 by Tony Li | 23 Comments

On Monday, the lead vocalist and guitarist of post-hardcore band On The Might of Princes,
Jason Rosenthal, passed away. The band posted the following on their official Facebook page:

"It is with insane sadness that i have to write and say that jason rosenthal,
singer/guitarist for On the Might of Princes, passed away last night. i don't know what to
say. of course he and i have had many differences, but at the heart of what we did and what
we shared, is an overwhelming amount of passion for the beauty and struggle of a long on/off friendship and trying to keep a sinking musical ship afloat. he gave so much of himself through his music, and touched so many hearts... helping us along through our hardships and loves. i'm not going to post any particular song right now, but encourage you to find the song that hit with you the most, and blast the fucking shit out of it. goodbyes like this are not good, but the flame unique people like him leave behind will warm us until we join him somewhere. be strong and hug the people you love everyday.

with love and never forgotten feedback"

Man. I haven't gotten around to listening to these guys yet, but sad news nonetheless. Does anyone know the cause of death by chance?

I laughed when I read 'with insane sadness'

And then I hung myself because I don't deserve to live anymore.

RIP

May have had one of those difficult to spot heart conditions like the footballer Fabrice Muamba has which caused him to nearly die on the pitch last year (he was 23 at the time).
