A bit of a shocker, this one. We’ve lost quite a few legends over recent months from various medical issues (usually cancer) and suicide. In this instance we’re informing you of a young musician who has been taken from us at the incredibly young age of only 22. Further details are unavailable and we apologise for the initial version of this post which was based on the only information we had at the time.
One tribute came to us from Gilson of Imperative Music who featured Heafield’s band, Hanging Death, on volume 15 of their series of compilations. By all accounts, Heafield was keen, talented, professional and a joy to work with. Hanging Death were gearing up for a US tour covering 16 dates through August and September, a promising act with a definite future ahead of them.
As ever, we’ll celebrate the talent of those we’ve lost with a sample of their work.
