Original A Skylit Drive vocalist Jordan Blake has died. The band confirmed Blake's death on their social media, saying they will not comment on the matter any further out of respect for Blake's privacy and family's wishes. Blake originally fronted A Skylit Drive between 2005 and 2007, and recently rejoined the band's original 2006 lineup to celebrate 15 years of their debut EP She Watched the Sky.
We wish Blake's friends and family all the best at this time.
"We are overwhelmed with grief to inform you of the loss of Jordan early this morning. Jordan was a trail blazer in the emo/post hardcore music scene with undeniable passion who loved his fans like family. When he had a story to tell, you could read it in his lyrics, hear it in his voice, see it his movements and feel it in your depths. We will forever reflect fondly on the memories and music we shared. We love you Jordan, we'll see you down the road brother. 'Always in our Hearts.'
"We want to respect Jordan's family's wishes for privacy and space to grieve so we will not be commenting until further notice. Thank you all for reaching out and for your kind words. His legacy will live on through all of you."
