Indie rockers Hawthorne Heights have been left stunned by the death of guitarist CASEY CALVERT. The 25-year-old's bandmates are still trying to come to terms with the tragedy after Calvert was found dead on the group's tourbus outside a Washington, D.C. club on Saturday (24Nov07). A statement from the band reads, "At this time we're not sure what exactly happened." The tragedy could not have come at a worse time for Hawthorne Heights, who kicked off their Wintour 2007 dates on Friday night (23Nov07). Washington, D.C. authorities are awaiting results of an autopsy before determining the cause of death. In website postings, the band call Calvert their "quirky and awesome" best friend, adding, "Today is probably the worst day ever." The band is also asking fans not to "succumb to any gossip you may hear" out of respect for Calvert and his family, and they state, "We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. We don't want his memory to be tainted in the least." The show Calvert was in Washington, D.C. to perform on Saturday night was cancelled. As WENN went to press there's no news available about the remaining Hawthorne Heights tour dates. Speaking to the Cincinnati Post newspaper, Calvert's stepmother said her son was "a very good and kind young man, and right now there aren't any answers." The guitarist wed his childhood sweetheart, a schoolteacher, last year (06).
