Todd SeriousSad news has come out of the Vancouver punk scene this morning as The Rebel Spell posted that their front man Todd Serious, legally known as Todd Jenkins, passed away this weekend while rock climbing.

The band posted the news saying: 

It is our deepest regret to inform you all that on Saturday, March 7th, we lost our good friend and lead singer Todd Serious, also known as Todd Jenkins, in a tragic rock climbing accident. Todd influenced our lives in a way that is beyond comprehension. This is completely sudden and unexpected and we’re still processing what has happened. We’re taking a few days to figure it all out. This is pretty heavy for all of us, and a lot of people are still finding out so if you’re letting others know, please be respectful.

Fellow Vancouver folk-punker Jesse Lebourdais commented on the loss saying:

You were the greatest of us all. You taught me everything good I know about being in a band and being a fair and just human being. I looked up to you my whole life and I was proud to call you my friend and my hero, which makes this impossible to accept. I love you and I will never forget you.

The band last released Last Run in 2014.
