Stephens told fans that the band has been grieving during this difficult time over the loss of their friend, and fellow band mate Pavone, but decided that it is best to continue on with the tour this fall. Stephens saying, “Through all of that, we decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour, We feel like this honors Kyle Pavone, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would have wanted us to do and us be together on stage, playing music together, with our fans.” On the topic of who will be taking over Pavone’s vocal/keyboardist duties Stephens says, “We will not be replacing Kyle, We’ll be continuing on the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”
Pavone suddenly passed away on August 25th at the young age of 28. It was later revealed that the cause of death was an accidental overdose in which the band released a statement telling fans that in lieu of flowers they can donate to the Kyle Pavone Foundation, which you can find more information on, HERE.
