(CelebrityAccess) — Trish Doan, the bassist for the Canadian metal band Kittie, has died. She was 31.
News of Doan's passing was announced via the band's official Facebook page on Monday.
“It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan. Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band," the band said in the post.
"She was our blood, our sister, and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated. We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family's privacy during this difficult time."
No cause of death was announced for Doan, but she had previously left the band in 2008 to seek treatment for anorexia, later rejoining the group in 2011. – Staff Writers
