With a heavy heart we are regretfully announcing the passing of our dear friend Fergus Miller.
Fergus was an incredibly talented musician and writer. He released wonderful music through Bored Nothing, Pansy, Wedding ring bells as well as working with countless other artists and musicians.
Unfortunately, depression eroded away at him and he passed away on Sunday morning.
We have all been so lucky to have known him, he enriched all of our lives and his warmth and friendship will never leave us.
He meant the world to his friends and family and although our hearts are breaking, his songs will be with us all as we fight to continue life without him.
Please remember to hold onto your loved ones, as there are times when life can really stop you in your tracks, but it’s the people around you who pull together to get each other through. If ever you are feeling down or feel like everything is getting on top of you, please remember that there is always somewhere to turn or help to be found.
Bored Nothing drew some international attention with their self-titled debut in 2012, and their 2014 follow-up Some Songs. – Staff Writers
