Cipher Drummer Daniel Bobis Found Dead

NYDailyNews.com has reported that the body of Cipher drummer Daniel Bobis, who went missing while surfing, was discovered today by search crews. An excerpt from the article follows:

Local fisherman in Indonesia on Thursday discovered the body of a popular Long Island surfer and teacher who vanished after wiping out on a wave on Sunday morning. Search crews in West Lampung, Sumatra, said the fishermen pulled the body of Daniel Bobis from waters about 20 miles from the remote break he was surfing when he went missing.

Bobis, 32, allegedly fell off his surfboard after colliding with another surfer while riding a 10-foot swell. His leash broke, sending his board washing ashore.

The Long Beach High math teacher was on a monthlong trek though Sri Lanka and Indonesia with his wife and a friend.

The trio was due back in the U.S. in mid-August, and friends said Bobis and his wife, Rachel, had planned to start a family.

Cipher also posted the following brief message online: "Thanks to all that send condolences for the loss of our brother. We'll keep you all updated. We're all supporting each other, both current and past members of Cipher. Thanks for the genuine love and care. Danny will remain in all of our hearts."

You can find additional details on the band and listen to music available for streaming by heading over to the official Cipher Facebook page.

You're probably right. I should have postdated it.

RIP, man.

They sound like a metalcore band with rap-style vocals.
