“On Friday afternoon, September 30th, our brother and former drummer in our band, Maxim Soria, passed away in a motorcycle accident. We always knew Max as being one of the most meticulous and cautious people we’ve ever met, and hearing the news and processing it over the past few days has been incredibly hard for all of us. We’d like to thank everyone that has been reaching out to us during this difficult time. The shock of this news left the Soria family, our families, our close friends, and ourselves completely devastated, but hearing everyone the world over leave their condolences helped everyone realize how important Max is to the people he touched. Keeping that in mind, we have been doing our best to remember the best times we had with him, think about the way he impacted so many thousands of people around the world, and it helps us find a little glimmer of light in these very dark moments.

We toured with Max for seven years, but even after he left the band, he remained a big part in all of our lives. Whenever we were home from tour, we would spend almost every day together, either talking about music, movies, food, or just life in general. He was everyone’s confidante, always lending his ear and his wisdom to anyone who needed advice and went to him for it. In fact, the last time I spoke with Max was a time where he spent an hour on the phone with me and helped guide me through a personal situation I had no idea how to handle. I’ll never forget that about him. We will always appreciate the chance we had to be surrounded by such a bright, caring, talented, and intelligent person.

After the overwhelming reaction we have seen worldwide regarding what has happened, we would like to inform everyone of a public service and remembrance to be held in Max’s honor this Wednesday and Thursday, October 5th and 6th at Shelly Funeral Home and St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Warrington, Pennsylvania. If you are able to, please join us and the Soria family in paying our respects and celebrating Max’s life. It may have been tragically cut short, but his family, friends, us, and you all have so many great memories to take away from the short time we had with him. Once again, thank you all for your support and kind words, it has meant the world to all of us.”
