We regret to inform you that Kittie bassist Trish Doan has passed away. She was only 31 years old. Far too young.

We wish all the best to her family and friends as they move forward through this situation.

R.I.P. Trish Doan

This news was made public when the following statement and picture surfaced on the band’s social media:

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. 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.
