News about Trevor’s passing came out via The Black Dahlia Murder social media channels. Per the statement released by the band:

“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

Along with that statement, individual members of the band have also taken to social media to talk about Trevor.

From The Black Dahlia Murder lead guitarist Brandon Ellis:

“I can not even begin to process this… In total shock and disbelief. It has been my greatest honor to spend the last six and a half years in a band with this absolute icon and legend. A brother. A best friend. One of the funniest and most entertaining people to walk the earth. The life of the party that is The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as any given room he happens to occupy. A lyrical mastermind. A champion of the entire culture of heavy music. Also my biggest supporter. This man changed my life and believed in me more than I do myself. I can not believe there will be no more laughs had, songs written together, or stages decimated with Trevor at the helm. I hope he knew how much he was loved the world over.

Rest in peace Trevor 💔

This is just devastating. We can’t imagine the pain and hurt the band, Trevor’s family, friends, and loved ones are going through. We are thinking of you all.
