Twitching Tongues drummer Cayle Sain (who also played with Fuming Mouth, Ghostemane, Downpresser, Mizery, etc.) has died. Sain drummed for Twitching Tongues between 2015 and 2023, with his final effort being the Misfits covers EP dubbed Twitchfits Vol. 1.
Twitching Tongues has issued a brief statement on Sain's death. We wish Sain's friends and family all the best at this time.
"Our beloved friend, brother, and drummer Cayle Sain has passed away," wrote the band. "Aside from his unmatched talent, Cayle had the biggest heart and was the most loyal and caring friend anyone could ask for. If you spent one minute with him, he loved you. Rest in peace, and goodbye for now."
Twitching Tongues' Colin Young added in a separate post: "A true artist and a TRUE legend. Cayle was sensitive, hilarious and the most passionate musician I've ever played with. He possessed irreplaceable talent and an even more irreplaceable spirit who had nothing but love to give to everyone in his life. He remembered every face, every name and talked about so many of you so often.
"Cayle is and was the rhythm backbone of Southern California, he SAVED multiple bands, Twitching Tongues would have stopped a long time ago if he didn't step up.
"I'm in absolute shock and go in and out of crying every few minutes, half from grief, and half from remembering something funny he said or did. Truly a comedic genius and I can't believe I'll never get to hear another joke again. If God is real, he opened the gates for Cayle with a subscription to SoundCloud premium, a fresh bottle of sweet baby rays and a damn hearing aid.
"I hope that everyone, at some point, gets to have a friend like Cayle. Goodbye to our buddy, we love you."
