Shields Guitarist George Christie Has Passed Away 

We’d like to send our deepest condolences to the band, family and friends.

Shields guitarist George Christie has sadly passed away. The metalcore band had recently supported Escape The Fate on their UK tour.

Vocalist and guitarist Sam Kubrick posted the following message on his Facebook:

There is no easy way to say this. 

Last night, George Christie took his own life. He was the most empathetic, kind and generous person I’ve ever met in my life and I was lucky to call him one of my best friends, fellow band member and room mate.

I’ve tried to contact as many of you personally as possible that I felt needed a phone call rather then learning about this tragedy via a Facebook post, but everyone needs to find out eventually. 

I don’t want to disclose any more information about his passing out of respect for his family, please don’t ask. Those who need to know, know.

We’d like to send everyone affected our deepest condolences at this difficult time. 

Remember if you ever need anyone to talk to Samaritans can be contacted free on 116 123 (in the UK) or by email on [email protected].
