He was 49-years-old at the time of his passing and a cause of death was not revealed. His former bandmates in Turbonegro issued a statement of their own regarding his passing, it reads:

“It is with immense sadness we received the tragic news that Hans-Erik «Hertis» Dyvik Husby has passed away.

We are thankful for the times, the moments and the magic we shared with Hans-Erik in Turbonegro during the years 1993-2009.

As a charismatic frontman who equally channeled humor and vulnerability, Hans-Erik was crucial for the band’s appeal. He was a warm and big hearted human, a spiritually and intellectually seeking person who loved having a conversation with anyone. We are proud of what we created together as rock brothers in Turbonegro – the music, the characters, our whole universe.

Hank Von Helvete remains an iconic figure in the history of Norwegian rock and popular culture, and also made a mark as a profile in the international rock´n´roll community.

Actor, romantic and entertainer – through his life Hank left no doubt that he was a man for the stage, loving the spotlight and the room’s attention.

Our thoughts and hearts go to his family.
Rest In Peace”

In an odd twist, new music from Hank arrived on the day of his passing, as he guested on Me And That Man‘s new track “Black Hearse Cadillac“, which arrived yesterday as part of Behemoth frontman Nergal‘s latest Me And That Man album, “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 2“.
