The punk singer is believed to have had a fatal heart attack.

According to the BBC, Pete Shelley, frontman for punk rock heavy-hitters Buzzcocks, has died at the age of 63. Though a cause of death has not been officially determined, it is believed he died of a heart attack. Pete passed away in Estonia, where he lived.

Buzzcocks were known for being listenable and romantic while simultaneously brashly in-your-face, with catchy hits like Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve) and What Do I Get? juxtaposed against tracks like Orgasm Addict and Why Can’t I Touch It?

The hearts of everyone at Kerrang! go out to Pete’s friends, family, bandmates and fans.
