Not long after the passing of former King Conquer guitarist John Byrd, more bad news has sprung up from Florida. It comes with a heavy heart to say the band’s other original guitarist Brodie Wheeler has suffered a similar fate. The man touched many lives in his time and will surely be missed by many.

R.I.P. Brodie Wheeler

Here’s the statement from the band in regards to this:

“Today we lost another brother to substance abuse. Our original guitar player Brodie Wheeler passed today! If it wasn’t for him and Adam, this band would have never been started, and countless kids in the Florida scene would have never started going to shows and playing instruments. You will be missed man… If you battle with substance abuse, please reach out to someone. People will help if you want to be helped!”
