Former Hurtlocker Drummer Passes Away While In Rehab
Former HURTLOCKER drummer Dan Ditella, who played with the group during much of 2005 and recorded drums on the band's Napalm Records debut, "Fear in a Handful of Dust", passed away on October 18 due to complications while in rehab in Elgin, IL. "The details are still sketchy so at this point we can't say too much," the band writes on its MySpace page. "Our thoughts go out to his family, especialy his brother Mike, and his mother as well as all of Dan's friends.
"During his time with HURTLOCKER, he struggled with many demons, but he was a good kid with a big heart. We only hope that Dan found the peace he couldn't find while he was here."
"Fear in a Handful of Dust" was released in January through Napalm Records.
