Former Deerhunter bassist Josh Fauver has passed away at the age of 39. A cause of death was not reported, but a band representative confirmed the sad news.
Fauver first joined the Atlanta-based indie rock band in 2004 after founding bassist Justin Bosworth died. He recorded on their debut self-titled album that same year and ultimately played on six releases as they gained their massive following. He would quit Deerhunter in 2012 for personal reasons. In addition to Deerhunter, Fauver ran an indpendent label called Army of Bad Luck and played in the bands Electrosleep International, S.I.D.S., and Diet Cola.
