Depeche Mode Reveals Andy Fletcher’s Cause Of Death

Depeche Mode has release a statement addressing the death of keyboardist Andy Fletcher. Bandmates Dave Gahan and Martin Gore said in a statement, “We wanted to take a moment and acknowledge the outpouring of love for Andy that we’ve seen from all of you over the last few weeks. It’s incredible to see all of your photos, to read your words, and to see how much Andy meant to all of you. As you can imagine, it’s been a strange, sad, disorienting few weeks for us here, to say the least. But we’ve seen and felt all of your love and support, and we know that Andy’s family has too.”

The band continued, “We had a celebration of Andy’s life in London last week which was a beautiful ceremony and gathering with a few tears, but filled with the great memories of who Andy was, stories of all of our times together, and some good laughs. Andy was celebrated in a room full of many of his friends and family, our immediate DM family, and so many people who have touched Andy’s and our lives throughout the years. All being together was a very special way to remember Andy and see him off.”

The band revealed that Fletcher died on May 26th due to “an aortic dissection.”

They added, “So, even though it was far, far too soon, he passed naturally and without prolonged suffering.”
