Tom Relleen (Tomaga, Autotelia, The Oscillation, Papivores) RIP
We are still trying to digest yesterday's news, it really has knocked us for six. Tom was such a calm, collected, positive and forward looking human being, and we are in shock with what has happened.
On initially hearing Tom was ill we deliberated with Demian whether we should carry on and release the Autotelia album - Tom of course gave us his blessing & wanted it to still come out - I know he was really happy to see the tracks getting out there into the world. So we obviously feel incredibly lucky to have worked with him on the album – but first and foremost Tom was a friend, and he is going to be sorely missed. He was one of the good ones!
Our love and thoughts go to all his family and friends.
