Black Tusk: Vulture's Eye

According to the official Black Tusk Facebook, bassist/vocalist Jonathan Athon has passed away. Below is the band’s official statement:

“It is with deep regret and saddened hearts that we must tell you that Athon passed away this morning from injuries sustained from his motorcycle accident. Doctors told us that he suffered irreparable brain damage shortly after the accident. He has been in a coma and sustained by life support until now. As per his wishes, we removed Athon from his life support systems and his organs will be donated. His body will be cremated and a memorial is being planned for family and friends in Savannah. He was 32 years old and will be forever missed. Thank you all for your support during this devastating time for us, it would have made him proud.”

Rest in Peace, Athon, and thanks for all the kick ass music.
