Test Icicles Founding Member Sam Mehran Dead at 31
Sam Mehran, one of the founding members of UK dance-punk trio Test Icicles, has died at the age of 31. While Mehran's passing was confirmed by his colleagues, no cause of death has been revealed as of press time.
 
Mehran founded Test Icicles in 2004 with Rory Attwell, and they were later joined by Devonte Hynes (a.k.a Blood Orange).
 
The band released one studio album, For Screening Purposed Only, in 2005. Following a string of EPs and singles, the group disbanded in 2006.
 
Mehran went on to record and release music under the moniker Outer Limits Recording.
 
Zac Mering of Gunk TV Records, which released Outer Limits Recording's work, shared a message for Mehran on Instagram, describing him as "the most talented musician I've ever had the pleasure of being close friends with."
