Scream Announce The Death Of Their Drummer Kent Stacks


DC hardcore outfit Scream have announced the passing of their drummer Bennett Kent Stacks. A founding member of the outfit, his bandmates announced his passing in a post shared across social media today, September 20th. That post reads as follows:

“We are heartbroken to share that our drummer Bennett Kent Stacks passed away this morning after a bout with metastatic cancer. Kent is the original heartbeat of Scream. Though we have had to continue on without him before, we have always known Kent is irreplaceable. He was one of a kind. In addition to being a truly unique drummer, Kent was also an accomplished fisherman, skilled carpenter, and avid train enthusiast.

Kent also played in prominent punk and harDCore bands including The Suspects, Spitfires United, Alleged Bricks and more throughout his life. He also branched out to other genres, playing with The Daryl Davis Band and The Old Dominion Trio.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years Andrea, daughter Jennifer, brothers Kurt, William and Henry and a host of band mates, friends and fans. If you ever saw us play or if you knew Kent, your thoughts and memories are welcome here.”

The sad news of his passing follows this week’s reveal that the band’s first new studio album since 1993, “DC Special“, will be out on November 10th.
