A Skylit Drive's original vocalist Jordan Blake has passed away at the age of 36. The band confirmed the sad news via an Instagram post earlier today (May 02).
The band wrote “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 anything else until further notice. Thank you all for reaching out and for your kind words. His legacy will live on through all of you.”
Blake had fronted the post-hardcore outfit between 2005 and 2007 before reuniting with the group in January 2022 in celebration of debut EP ‘She Watched The Sky’.
Our thoughts are with Blake’s loved ones at this difficult time.
