|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"

Never heard of the band but fuck me RIP. That post from the band is heart-wrenching.

I wasn't aware of this band until now, with this tragic news. I checked out some of their music & I really like it. Very talented band with a lot of heart & soul.
Rest in peace!
This band released 2 outstanding albums and a pretty good one.
I think I'm going to check out their music in tribute.
Such a bummer, RIP. Turns out it was a heart attack
Digging: Black Sheep Wall - No Matter Where It Ends
Who the fuck dies of a heart attack at 35
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).
