Longtime Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze died earlier today.
Invisible Oranges broke the story, receiving the information from a credible source of LaCaze's death. There is no word on the cause of his passing or any other further at this time.
LaCaze was with EYEHATEGOD since the band's inception on 4/20/88, and was also involved with other bands such as Outlaw Order, Ten Suicides, and Italian Cemetery Suicide. Eyehategod had just completed a European run and were gearing up for a string of shows celebrating their 25th anniversary. At this point, there is no word on the status of these shows, and obviously there are more pressing matters at hand.
We here at Metal Injection offer his family and friends our deepest condolences.
