We have some sad news to report. Kittie bassist Trish Doan has died at the young age of 31. Details of her passing are unclear. The band confirmed her death in a statement posted online.
“It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan. Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band. She was our blood, our sister and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated. We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
One month ago, Trish Doan posted about her struggles with mental health and noted that she “would not be here today” if it weren’t for help she had received. The post was made back on January 8th and she hadn’t posted anything since then.
