It’s been reported by the band via their Facebook page that Behold! the Monolith singer and bassist Kevin McDade died in a car accident this past Friday.
We are deeply saddened to report the loss of our band member, friend and brother Kevin McDade in a car accident early Friday evening. Needless to say we are absolutely devastated by this. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his parents, family and girlfriend.
Thanks for the time we had and the music we made together. We will, and already do, miss you terribly.
We weren’t super familiar with the Los Angeles trio, other than knowing that they were respected as a sludgy stoner/doom band along the lines of High on Fire and older Mastodon. It’s definitely unfortunate to hear of McDade’s passing, though. There’s no word on whether the two surviving members of the band will continue to soldier on, and our condolences are with McDade’s bandmates and family.
