We are saddened to hear of the death of Internal Bleeding drummer, devoted family man and FDNY hero William Tolley, who tragically passed away earlier today while battling a fire in Queens. The band released the following heart-wrenching message just a few hours ago…
Our drummer, the heartbeat of the band, William Tolley died today. There are ZERO WORDS to describe the loss. He was a good, decent and honorable man who loved his friends, his family and the people he served. There will never be another like him. There are no words to describe the utter sadness and despair we feel right now. We love you Bill.
Internal Bleeding, a staple of the NY death metal scene, are scheduled to release a new single tomorrow (4/21). The band also recently confirmed a U.S. tour with Vader, along with an appearance at NY Deathfest.
RIP William Tolley.
UPDATE: Internal Bleeding‘s new single “Final Justice” off their forthcoming LP, Corrupting Influence, has been released, stream it below.
