Frontman David Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus, issued a statement to Metalsucks that there was no word on the cause of death at press time.

“At this point there is no word on arrangements and the disposition of the remainder of GWAR’s current North American tour, nor are there any details regarding long-term plans,” Brockie said, adding the band members “are just dealing with the loss of our friend and brother, one of the most talented guitar players in metal today.”
