Ex-Volumes Guitarist Diego Farias Has Passed Away

Diego Farias, who parted ways with Volumes last week, has sadly passed away.

27-year-old guitarist and producer Diego Farias has passed away.

The musician was one of the founding members of progressive metalcore band Volumes, though had departed the group just last week. In a statement announcing their parting of ways, the band wrote: “Over the past few years, we have seen him grow in his career as a producer, and as a result, he lost the desire to tour with the band and then subsequently couldn’t further commit to the overall writing process with the group. We have had various replacement guitarists tour with the band. We wish nothing but the best of luck for Diego and know that he is on the fast track of becoming one of the most successful producers in the game.”

The sad news of Diego’s passing was today confirmed on Twitter by his brother Gus Farias, who had also recently left Volumes. A cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

RIP to my brother Diego I love you,” he posted. “I can’t believe I’m typing this.”
