Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison was sadly found dead at 36 last night, and his bandmates have now posted a statement. They write:

There are no words to describe the overwhelming sadness and pain that comes with the death of our beloved Scott but to know he is no longer suffering brings us some comfort. Reading messages of support and hope from those he has helped through his art has helped immensely and we encourage you to continue doing this. He will be missed by all of us and his absence will always be felt but he leaves a legacy of hope, kindness and colour that will forever be remembered and shared. Rest peacefully Scott.

Much love
Grant, Billy, Andy and Simon x

Several artists have paid tribute to Scott, including The National, Belle & Sebastian, Frank Turner, Franz Ferdinand, Mogwai, Snow Patrol, and more.
