Stefan Pettersson, the lead singer of USURPRESS, has passed away. The band has posted the following statement:
"So, you think you knew loss? You didn’t.
It is with tremendous pain in our hearts that we have to face the fact that our singer, and band leader, Stefan Pettersson fell into eternal sleep this morning. His battle with cancer was brave, and the amount of suffering he endured to complete our last album ”Interregnum” will be legendary even in hell. We love him, and so should you.
Remember him, discover his music.
/ Usurpress (Påhl Sundström, Erik Sundström, Stefan Hildman, Calle Lönnberg, Matte Modin, Lawrence Mackrory, Daniel Ekeroth)".
Stefan, it's been a honour to work with you. "Interregnum" has been the most unique release we have ever done and we will probably ever do. It's a already a legend.
