Kyle Pavone’s cause of death revealed
Last week we announced the sad news of Kyle Pavone’s death. The We Came As Romans singer was only 28 when he suddenly passed away but no cause of death was given. Now the band have revealed how their lead singer died:
In a statement posted on Instagram, the metalcore band reveal that Pavone had an accidental overdose. The singer had spent a week in a Michigan hospital when he died suddenly on August 25 so nobody thought it was something like that.
In his memory, the surviving singers have launched The Kyle Pavone Foundation, which aims to offer support for those in the music industry. In addition to this, We Came As Romans are planning a tribute event for Kyle in October.
Here’s what the band wrote: “On Saturday August 25, we lost our son, our brother, our best friend and our band mate to an accidental overdose. The opposite of addiction is connection. If you are feeling disconnected or lost, there is help. Please take action, whether that is talking to your families and friends, meeting with a counselor or joining a support group.”
“If you are a friend or family member or someone who is struggling, do not be silent! If you are an artist in need of support through your struggle, we have created the Kyle Pavone Foundation in Kyle’s honour to help,” they concluded.
