Grandaddy postpones tour after death of founding member Kevin Garcia







Unfortunately Grandaddy canceled their tour due to the passing of their band mate Kevin. Statement below with more info.

There are no accurate words to express what we need to.
We are absolutely shattered to say that we lost our friend and band mate Kevin Garcia early this afternoon. He succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.
We were all able to say goodbye to him and he was surrounded by his closest friends and family here in Modesto.
Kevin started playing with Grandaddy when he was fifteen. He was an actual angel. He navigated life with a grace, a generosity and a kindness that was utterly unique. And contagious. He is loved so deeply by so many.
Kevin was a proud father of two children, Jayden and Gavin. He is survived by his grandmother Joan, his parents Randy and Barbara (who let us practice at their house until 2001...and who are the best), his brothers Craig and Jeff and his wife Sondra.

There is a gofundme here to help with his family's coming expenses:  

Given the circumstances, we unfortunately have to cancel our upcoming US tour dates.   We hope to reschedule these at some point in the future.  The dates are below.

May 7  - Vancouver, Canada
May 8 -  Seattle, WA
May 9 – Portland, OR
May 11 – San Francisco, CA
May 12 – Los Angeles, CA
May 13 – Pioneertown, CA

With great sadness and love, Grandaddy
