Sad news to report from early today. Former Volumes co-founding guitarist Diego Farias, who formed the band in 2009 and was also a prolific producer, has passed away at the age of 27. Diego’s brother Gus Farias, who also officially left the band recently, broke the news on Twitter earlier today.
RIP TO MY BROTHER DIEGO I LOVE YOU I CANT BELIEVE IM TYPING THIS.

Farias, who also has a platinum record to his name with Jake Paul’s viral hit “It’s Everyday Bro” and 2 Latin Grammys for his work with legend Juan Gabriel a few years ago, helped the progressive metal band gain prominence on albums like Via and No Sleep. The metal community is certainly mourning the loss of a very talented person who was beloved by everyone he met. Rest In power, Diego.
