Palehorse Guitarist John Tamas Passes Away

Palehorse guitarist John Tamas passed away Monday night. Here's a statement from the band:

"A close personal friend, brother, and band mate passed away yesterday. There are no words to express the shock and despair we are all feeling right now. John Tamas grew up with all of us to the tune of 15+ years. He was a part of the Connecticut Hardcore scene for the past 12 years and has made a lasting impact in all of our lives. We would like to send our utmost gratitude to those who have been there for us in this tragic time. Your words, emails, phone calls, and tears have reopened our eyes to hardcore and what hardcore is all about. We have been surrounded by loved ones all day. Thank you so much."

A benefit show is being planned for September. According to Palehorse, "it will be bands from the time when we began going to shows. Bands that John loved and a show that John would have been proud to play." Additionally, the band is selling a limited edition 7", which will feature the only songs Tamas recorded with the band. Proceeds from both the 7" and benefit show will go to Tamas' mother to help with expenses.
