You Say Party We Say Die

You Say Party! We Say Die! drummer Devon Clifford has died after collapsing onstage during a show in Vancouver. The Abbotsford, B.C., band had been playing a show on Friday night at Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre when Clifford suddenly collapsed. He was taken to hospital but died Sunday morning, according to the band's publicist. Darryl Weeks said Clifford died while surrounded by family and friends. The cause of death has not been announced. The dance-punk band released their third full-length album, "XXXX," in September. [Canadian Press]
This week has been a rough one. RIP Devon.

The band recently played SXSW and was in NYC soon after. They're scheduled to tour Europe from late April though the middle of June. A video is below...

Agreed. Rest in peace, I don't even listen to the band, but my prayers are with his family, friends, and bandmates.

Was lucky enough to see them at Knitting Factory last month - the band was energized and you could see how much fun all of them were having. Devon was smiling through the whole show and his energy was contagious. Very sad day.
