RIP, Sean Stewart (HTRK)

For the past few hours I’d been hoping it was just some erroneous internet rumor, but a close and trusted source just confirmed the news: Sean Stewart, the bassist for HTRK, passed away earlier this week. Further details remain unverified. I’ll update when they’re available.

It feels like someone just punched me in the chest. Which makes sense, in a way. Sean’s basslines were the thudding, grinding, pounding heart of the Hate Rock Trio.

Goodbye, comrade.

    This is highly up setting. HTRK is one of my favorites of the last few years. My heart goes out to his family and bandmates.

    Another huge loss for the music community, condolences to his bandmates and family.
    Seems like we’re losing more and more amazing musicians every day.
    Also, Roland Howard was a collaborator on their latest album, think I will go home and put it on in honour of both of them.
