Sad news in the metal world today: Jon Rossi of Rhode Island doom band Pilgrim has passed away. He was just 26. No cause of death has been given at this point.

Pilgrim have yet to post the news themselves, but fellow doom band Devil wrote:

The world has lost a wizard.

We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Jon Rossi of Pilgrim. We crossed paths a couple of times, and a more humble and kind soul you won't come across often.

Our deepest condolances to Jon's family, friends and his brothers in Pilgrim.
Rest in Peace, Wizard. The pilgrimage has just begun.

Pilgrim just played the Providence stop of The Obsessed and Cobalt's tour two days ago (10/25). You can watch a video from the show below. Last week, they cancelled their European tour.

Rest in peace, Jon. You'll be missed.
