Heathen's former bassist Jon Torres, who also played guitar in Ulysses Siren as well as bass for Lääz Rockit, Slough Feg and Angel Witch, has sadly passed away on September 3rd.

His former band Heathen released this statement regarding his passing: "We are extremely saddened to learn of Jon Torres' passing. He was a great friend and Heathen band mate for many years and we were fortunate enough to play some great music together. We'll remember his passion for music, his quick wit, and the time we spent with him recording, touring and just hanging out. Our thoughts go out to Tambre, Cassie and Jon's extended family. He will be missed..."
