Kittie Bassist Trish Doan Has Passed

Former bassist Trish Doan has passed away at the age of 31. Trish born in South Korea joined the band in 2005 and then rejoined in 2012. The band made an official announcement today:

It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan. Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band. She was our blood, our sister and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated. We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family’s privacy during this difficult time.

Doan reportedly moved to Australia in 2009 and then later returned in 2013. Her twitter account shows the struggles that Doan faced. Her departure from the band in 2007 was reportedly due to her battle with an eating disorder and anorexia.

Migrate 10k Miles away. Work late daily. Nothing else to do. Zero friends. Eating alone in my car.
