Bryan St. Pere, drummer for the ’90s rock band Hum, has died. He was 52, Pitchfork reports.

The surviving members of Hum revealed the sad news in a social media post Thursday, writing, “It is with very heavy hearts and tear filled eyes that we share the news that our beloved friend and bandmate, Bryan St. Pere, has passed away.”

The post does not disclose a cause of death, but his passing is described as “sudden and unexpected.”

“Bryan was a dear friend, a loving father, brother, and was an incredible person and musician,” the post reads. “We all feel extremely lucky to have shared time and space with him. Peace and love to all who knew Bryan, and those he touched. We will miss him dearly.”

Hum formed in the late ’80s, with St. Pere joining in 1990. They released four albums in the ’90s, including 1995’s You’d Prefer an Astronaut, which spawned the alternative rock radio hit “Stars.” The group went on hiatus in 2000 and reunited for sporadic performances over the years before returning in 2020 with a new album, Inlet.

Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has cited Hum as one of his influences.
