I am so incredibly sad to hear that my old friend Shane Bisnett died on New Year’s day. Shane was an immensely kind and talented musician who had such a powerful and beautiful tone to his voice. In addition to touring with Ice Nine Kills for years, Shane also wrote a ton of the great melodic elements of our ‘Safe Is Just A Shadow’ album with me. I’ll always remember those cold Rochester, NY nights in 2009 working on songs with him and searching for that “perfect chorus” together. Shane was built like a tough looking dude, but as soon as you engaged with him you realized what a lovable and gentle soul he was….and that smile! He was the kind of dude that would always have your back, no matter what. This video of us playing was filmed probably around 2010 when the band was still crashing on people’s floors after shows. It breaks my heart that I’ll never get to play music with him again but I’m so thankful that I got to know him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. RIP my man. #RIPShaneBisnett
