He was also an advocate for mental health, and encouraged everyone from friends to total strangers to persist through their struggles.

Though we have lost a dear friend and a great artists, we know that his music will live on and continue to help us find our common ground and find our strength despite adversity.

Please respect the privacy of Nature’s family during his painful time. May the Eternal Blue Sky find him at peace.”

The band’s guitarist Patrick Reilly informed MetalSucks that Ganganbaigal had suspiciously missed a pre-show rehearsal last weekend and that authorities informed them today that they found his body on June 13th.

Ganganbaigal was open about his struggles with his mental health, having discussed a past suicide attempt in detail with Kerrang! earlier this year .

At the time Ganganbaigal stated that a bitter legal dispute between the band and their then label M-Theory Audio had sent him into a deep depression. More recently he had looked back at coming through the ordeal as a learning experience, stating to Kerrang! this past spring of his struggles:

“I think this traumatizing experience crippled me in a way, but also empowered me in a way. It crippled in terms of traumatizing memories—I’m still recovering from that.

But it empowered me because it gave me more strength and more confidence. It’s kind of how an animal learns from fear, and becomes a better hunter.”

Tengger Cavalry released both a new album and an EP this past spring.
