Devastating news this morning with the announcement that Power Trip frontman Riley Gale has sadly passed away at age 35. The band revealed the news via social media reminding fans how special they were to him and for them to share stories on their post (below)
It was only September last year that the band ventured to Australia and we caught the Perth leg of the trip with photographer Den Rad and reviewer Jim Birkin stating:
“Riley Gale was into it to it too, egging the crowd to circle pit mayhem and allowing room for the energetic punters to jump on stage and hope that the throng below would hold their fall… Gale baiting the crowd with his microphone stand as if slaying them with an axe, fans singing in unison.”
Our thoughts go out to Riley’s family, band mates, friends and peers, as well as their legion of loyal fans.
Rest In Power
