Words by Ysabel Francisco

 

Former VOLUMES guitarist Diego Farias has reportedly passed away at the young age of 27. There is no official statement regarding a cause of death at the moment but many of those who knew Farias especially his brother, Gus Farias (also known as Yung Yogi), have shared his words on the matter on his social media:

“RIP TO MY BROTHER DIEGO I LOVE YOU I CANT BELIEVE IM TYPING THIS.”

“WE TOURED THE WORLD TOGETHER WE LIVED THE DREAM TOGETHER I LOVE YOU DIEGO. REST IN PARADISE LITTLE BROTHER YOU NOW LIVE THRU ME. ❤️”

“EVERYTIME I LOOK IN THE MIRROR I SEE THE 19 STITCH SCAR YOU GAVE ME THANK YOU I WILL WEAR THIS SCAR PROUDLY FOREVER LOVE YOU LITTLE BROTHER A REMINDER YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH ME.”

 

 

 

VOLUMES have released their official statement on Diego Farias’ passing on their social media saying:

“We are absolutely devastated by the tragic passing of Diego Farias. We are trying to cope and process this as it all seems so surreal. We send our love and thoughts to his brothers Gus and Andres, his mother and father, and his entire extended family. As we collect our thoughts we will then be able to properly convey them more, but for now… we love you Diego, rest in power.”

Diego Farias, along with his brother Gus, was one of the founding members of the band and has been with them since 2009. It was only a week ago when the band released a lengthy statement regarding the departure of Diego Farias along with their comments on letting go of Gus Farias back in December.

Rest in peace.
