THE AGONY SCENE – Bassist Passes Away

THE AGONY SCENE bass player Jay White recently passed away from an undisclosed illness. A GoFundMe campaign designed to offset various expenses related to the Tulsa, Oklahoma musician’s treatment and passing can be found here.

The Agony Scene issued the following statement:

“It is with extremely heavy hearts that we regretfully inform you all of the passing of our friend and bandmate Jay White.

“Jay was a uniquely special individual who made a serious impact in his short time on this earth. He was a true force of nature that we will all miss dearly. Rest easy, we love you, Jay.”

Originally a hardcore/metalcore band formed in 2000, The Agony Scene broke up, and got back together in 2003 with a slightly altered line-up and a more melodic death-influenced sound. Quietly broke up in spring 2008 after abruptly aborting a tour with Himsa.

In the band’s early days, they were commonly mistaken for being a ‘Christian band’ due to releasing their debut album on Solid State Records (a predominately Christian label). Members of the band have denied these rumors, stating that the band holds no religious leanings.
