Pennsylvania metal/punk bassist Brad Raub, who’s played in War Hungry, Sumerlands, Eternal Champion, Street Smart Cyclist, Yo Man Go!, and more over the years, has passed away. He was just 36. His bandmates in Sumerlands and Eternal Champion broke the sad news, writing:

We are devastated to report that yesterday our brother, our bassist, our best friend, Brad Raub has passed on. He was 36 years young.

Brad was well read, fucking hilarious, a true sweetheart, a great listener, a deadly sharp bassist, a legendary napper, and a man who loved his family and friends til his last moment.

A true example of a person whom to know was to love, and his friendship, mirth, his kindness and a thousand other qualities will be missed beyond what words can convey. Nothing can repair the void left in our lives right now but we are accepting love and good vibes. If you smoke then smoke one for our man, if you drink then drink one for our man. We love you Bad Brad. See you on the other side.

Rest in peace, Brad. Sending love to his friends and family.
