Letztes Wochenende spielten die Crystal Fighters noch beim Berlin Festival. Gestern gab die Band den Tod ihres Schlagzeugers Andrea Marongiu bekannt.
"It is with deep regret and great sadness that we announce the tragic passing of our drummer and friend, Andrea Marongiu. Andrea was not only one of the most brilliant, skilful and charismatic drummers to have ever graced the stage, but also an incredibly kind, fun and loving friend to us all. Our condolences go out to anyone who was lucky enough to have known him, and most particularly to his family.
We are all completely heartbroken by this news and we can't hold back the tears as we write this message to you. Andrea, thank you for all the incredible joy and life you brought to this band and to our lives for the last four years. We love you and we miss you more than words can say right now. Buon viaggio amico. With love always from Sebastian, Gilbert, Graham, Ellie, Nila, Clarissa, Mimi, Laure and all CF crew. Life will never be the same without you here brother xxx"
