He was only 39 years old and the former front of the Nu Metal band Nothingface. Despite being inactive for awhile, his loss has been felt profoundly across the community. Here’s the official statement in regards to his untimely passing…

Matt Holt, former singer of Nothingface, passed away at home in Maryland on April 15. He had been battling a degenerative illness for several years. He is survived by his parents and his younger brother.
