Last night, sad news was reported that Scary Kids Scaring Kids frontman Tyson Stevens had passed away.
Up until this morning, there was no confirmation about the singer’s passing, but Coma Prevail, Steven’s new band, confirmed the sad news in a post on Facebook.
On the social media account, Coma Prevail wrote: “Unfortunately the rumors are true. Out of respect for the family we will post details soon. Thank you.”
While the confirmation had not been made until hours after the headline hit the web, many tweets had begun to populate online from friends of the band and individuals showing their respect for Stevens. According to a source who spoke with Alternative Press, Stevens was found dead in his home in Tucson, but like Coma Prevail wrote, out of respect, we will wait for a confirmation from them and the family.
Scary Kids Scaring Kids called it a day back in 2009 when all members decided, mutually, that the band has run its course.
In honor of Stevens and this sad turn of events, here’s one of our favorite songs from Scary Kids Scaring Kids that would have been on several of our high school mixtapes (mixed CDs?).
