Guitarist Casey Calvert of Hawthorne Heights found dead

Casey Calvert, the guitarist for Hawthorne Heights was found dead on Friday Nov. 23rd in their tour bus.

The cause of death has yet to be announced, although early reports suggest it may be related to acute asthma.

"At this time we're not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed," the band wrote in a Nov. 24 post on its Web site.

The band released a statement: "We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don't contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear," the statement continues. "We don't want his memory to be tainted in the least. Casey was our best friend. He was quirky and awesome and there will truly be no others like him! His loss is unexplainable."

He was 25. I've never actually listened to this bands music but I beleive it's what hooligans call today as "scream-o". Emo type music but lots of yelling.
