According to a post made by the band on social media, original A Skylit Drive vocalist Jordan Blake has died. Blake was originally in A Skylit Drive from 2005 to 2007 and had recently rejoined the band as part of their 15th anniversary celebrations for debut EP She Watched the Sky, the only A Skylit Drive recording that Blake was ever a part of.
MetalSucks sends our condolences to Blake’s family and friends.
“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.”
