Warp Records has released an official statement today announcing that Broadcast singer Trish Keenan has died. The news was announced yesterday that Keenan had been in hospital since Christmas battling pneumonia after contacting the H1N1 virus whilst the band were on tour in Australia.
It’s difficult to know what to say at this time, other than to express extreme sadness at the passing of a truly great, unique and innovative talent. Here’s that Warp statement in full:
“It is with great sadness we announce that Trish Keenan from Broadcast passed away at 9am this morning in hospital. She died from complications with pneumonia after battling the illness for two weeks in intensive care.
Our thoughts go out to James, Martin, her friends and her family and we request that the public respect their wishes for privacy at this time.
This is an untimely tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly – a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in Peace.”
