Vital Remains - Announce Asian Tour, Former Singer Passes Away

There's some good news and some bad news from Vital Remains today. The band has lost their former singer Jake Raymond, who was briefly in the band back in 2001. The good news is that the death metal band will tour in Asia this month.

Guitarist Tony Lazaro said about the passing of Jake Raymond: "I found out late yesterday some very sad news that a old friend and Vital Remains singer passed away. His name was Jake Raymond, and he was a good friend! Some of you might remember Jake was VR's vocalist back in 2001 before we recorded Dechristianize album. He really love the band and always held us in high regard. Even though I hadn't spoken or seen Jake in a few years i always hope things were going good for him. I remember the last time I saw him he came out to one of our local shows in Providence and we had fun catching up and talking about the good old days! We laughed a lot that night and I remember he started helping me sell merch and asked if I needed any help? You were always trying to help bro and I wish I could have helped you bro. Thank you for that and everything else you did for me! I will always remember the good times we had brother! This is really so sad. I'm sick of losing so many friends this year. This makes three Vital Remains singers that passed in the last year. Three brothers I will not forget! Thank you Jake for your friendship and all your help when I needed it! Thank you for all your work with the band!! I wish I could have been there for you more brother, but we kind of took different paths. I hope you are at peace now. Rest easy brother and until we meet again. My Deepest condolences to his family and friends. RIP Jake."
