The members of heavy rockers Hatebreed
are paying tribute to former bandmate Lou 'Boulder' Richards online after the guitarist was found dead on Wednesday.
Richards was 35 and no official cause of death has been released, but in a statement to fans on the group's website, his ex-bandmates have suggested he may have taken his own life.
They write, "It is very unfortunate that he could not see any other way to conquer his demons. We hope he has finally found some peace."
Richards was with Hatebreed for six years before he quit the group in 2002 and was eventually replaced by Frank Novinec. He appeared on Hatebreed's 1997 debut Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire
