Frontman Ryan Karazija of the Icelandic alternative rock band Low Roar passed away abruptly, the band has revealed. He was 40. On social media, the band shared a tribute to its lead singer.
“His beautiful music and lyrics, sung in his haunting voice have touched the lives of so many people all over the world and will continue to do so. He was a kind and beautiful soul and our worlds are shattered by the loss of him. May we honor his memory through his art and hold him forever in his songs.”
“The sixth Low Roar record was already underway and will be completed and released when it is ready. Please respect his family’s privacy at this incredibly difficult time,” concludes the statement.
The post was later modified to disclose the cause of death shortly after that original remark. Many people talked about how hearing Low Roar’s music on the Death Stranding soundtrack led them to fall in love with it. The band’s first album was released in 2011, and the fifth and most recent one came in 2021.
