Our communities worst fears have just been realized. It comes with a heavy heart that we tell you Justin Lowe has passed away. He was only 32 years old. The renowned After The Burial guitarist and mastermind was found dead under the Arcola High Bridge connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Reports from New Richmond News suggest that he fell to his death before being found by a hiker.

This all comes after the hard news of Justin’s battles with mental illness and recent status as a missing person. There’s no easy way to look at this situation as the pain can be felt in all corners of the metal population. Our deepest condolences go out to the Lowe family, After The Burial, and any member of our community feeling this pain right now. Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers.

Let’s all take a moment to respect this musical genius and legend of a man.

R.I.P. Justin Lowe
