Thomas Fekete, co-founder of American indie rock band Surfer Blood, is sadly the latest name added to 2016’s ever growing list of departed musicians. Fekete passed away after a year long battle with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. He was aged just 27, and was the second addition to the infamous ’27 club’ this year following the tragic Viola Beach crash in February. Fekete remained in high spirits despite surgeries and chemotherapy, and even carried on making music with the proceeds going towards medical expenses. He lead a promising career which was cut short far too soon, and he will be dearly missed by friends, family and fans alike.
