Lush Drummer Takes Own Life
Chris Acland, drummer for the ethereal U.K. band Lush, was found
dead at his parents home in Cumbria, England yesterday afternoon.
Acland had hung himself, according to a report in today's online
version of the New Musical Express, and was discovered by his
father. A founding member of Lush, Acland had recently completed a
tour of the U.S., but was considering not touring with the band in
Europe. A session drummer was on tap to tour with the Lush pending
Acland's decision, according to the NME. We learned today that the
tour has now been postponed. The group scored a hit in England
earlier this year with the song "Ladykillers," which appeared on
their most recent and fifth album, Lovelife. The group's new single,
"Ciao!," which features Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, was released in
England this week. Acland was 30.
