The Black Dahlia Murder Frontman Trevor Strnad Dies

Trevor Strnad, the frontman for The Black Dahlia Murder, has died at 41. So far, no cause of death has been released, but the remaining band members shared the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in their statement.

On Instagram, the band announced Strnad’s passing with the following statement:

“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 800-273-8255.″

Strnad founded The Black Dahlia Murder in 2001 and remained its frontman until his passing. The band released nine albums throughout the course of their career, including their most recent album 2020’s Verminous.

The Black Dahlia Murder were supposed to support Parkway Drive on a Spring US tour that was set to start earlier this week, but was canceled by Parkway Drive due to “internal conflicts within the band.” The Black Dahlia Murder also booked a summer tour of Europe scheduled for August.

Our thoughts go out to Strnad’s family and friends during this difficult time.
