Kingston band The Glorious Sons posted to social media today that bassist Chris Huot returned home from the U.S. leg of their tour earlier this week after his brother Adrian fell gravely ill and has now passed away at the age of 30.
Adrian leaves behind two young children and a family in a state of shock, disbelief and grief. The band has created a GoFundMe campaign to benefit his children.
Full statement, as posted to The Glorious Sons Facebook page:
Friends,As we prepare for the Canadian leg of the A War On Everything Tour, we do so with extremely heavy hearts….
As we prepare for the Canadian leg of the A War On Everything Tour, we do so with extremely heavy hearts.
Our brother, Chris “Black Mamba” Huot returned home from the US leg of the tour earlier this week to news that his brother Adrian had fallen gravely ill, suddenly and unexpectedly. Despite the doctors’ best efforts at Kingston General, he passed away at age 30 leaving two young children and a family in a state of shock, disbelief and grief.
Chris will not be with us on tour, as he understandably wants to be with his family during this time. Our hearts break for his family, and we know that’s where Chris needs to be right now.
In honour of Adrian’s memory, we have set up a GoFundMe to benefit his children. The funds raised will go towards their education, and overall well-being moving forward. We encourage you to consider donating in Adrian’s memory.
We’ll take the stage missing our brother, one half of our rhythm section anchor, and above all our friend. The Glorious Sons family is incomplete without him on stage, but the Huot family has lost a brother, a son and a father, a hole that can’t be filled.
Please keep Chris’ family in your thoughts and prayers. Don’t take a second for granted with those you love.
– The Glorious Sons
