According to Metalsucks, Kittie bassist Trish Doan passed away. She was only 31 years old and we are deeply saddened by this shocking news. We do not know how she died, hopefully we will find a statement shortly.

Doan was with Kittie from 2005-2007 and returned in 2012. She worked on their fourth studio album Funeral for Yesterday (2007) and EP Never Again (2006). Our thoughts are with her friends and family during this difficult time.

The band left the following statement on their facebook:

It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan. Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band. She was our blood, our sister and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated. We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
