Tengger Cavalry Frontman Nature Ganganbaigal Has Died

Tengger Cavalry frontman Nature Ganganbaigal has passed away with his cause of death not having been publicly revealed thus far. The band’s guitarist Patrick Reilly informed the press that Ganganbaigal had missed a pre-show rehearsal and that authorities informed the group that they found his body on June 13th.

Ganganbaigal's bandmates shared the below statement on the matter:

“It is with deep sadness and shock that we must share the news that Nature has passed away. Nature’s greatest goal in life was the unite people of all backgrounds through community and through music.

He was also an advocate for mental health, and encouraged everyone from friends to total strangers to persist through their struggles.

Though we have lost a dear friend and a great artists, we know that his music will live on and continue to help us find our common ground and find our strength despite adversity.

Please respect the privacy of Nature’s family during his painful time. May the Eternal Blue Sky find him at peace.”

Nature Ganganbaigal has discussed a past suicide attempt in detail with Kerrang! earlier this year, stating that a bitter legal dispute between Tengger Cavalry and their then label M-Theory Audio had lead him into a deep depression. This past spring Nature Ganganbaigal stated to Kerrang! of his mental struggles:

“I think this traumatizing experience crippled me in a way, but also empowered me in a way. It crippled in terms of traumatizing memories - I’m still recovering from that. But it empowered me because it gave me more strength and more confidence. It’s kind of how an animal learns from fear, and becomes a better hunter.”

Tengger Cavalry released a new album and an EP earlier this year.
