The world is mourning the loss of Riley Gale, beloved singer of Dallas thrash crossover band Power Trip, who passed away earlier this week. A true testament to just how many lives he touched, tributes have poured in from around the globe and far beyond the reaches of the metal and hardcore scenes. 

Tributes have arrived from members of bands like Code Orange, Fucked Up, Touché Amoré, Hatebreed, Anthrax and more alongside indie groups like Beach Fossils, No Joy and Best Coast, as well as rapper Trinidad James. Comedians like Johnny Pemberton and Brandon Wardell have also shared their thoughts. 

Yesterday, Power Trip confirmed Gale's passing with the following statement:

It is with the greatest of sadness we must announce that our lead singer and brother Riley Gale passed away last night. Riley was a friend, a brother, a son. Riley was both a larger than life rock star and a humble and giving friend. He touched so many lives through his lyrics and through his huge heart. He treated everyone he met as a friend and he always took care of his friends. We will celebrate Riley's life and never forget the great works of music, charity, and love that he left behind. You, the fans, meant so much to him, please know how special you are. If you have a memory of Riley please share it, no matter how small, as we remember him.

Gale died on Monday (August 24) at the age of 34. A cause of death has not yet been revealed.
