Trevor Strnad, the vocalist and leader of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, has died at 41.
“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him,” reads a statement that was posted to the band’s official social media account. “A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.” At the end of their statement, the band included the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273-8255.
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER band was named after the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, an aspiring actress who was found cut in half and drained of her blood back in 1947.
