According to a report from Brazilian media site BOA Informacao, which you can check out right here, Sanctuary/ex-Nevermore vocalist Warrel Dane has passed away due to heart failure. The report cites guitarist Johnny Moraes, who was working with Dane in the production of his upcoming new solo record "Shadow Work" in Sao Paulo last night. Dane was suffering from diabetes due to alcohol consumption
Moraes is quoted as saying (translated): "He tonight had a heart attack. It was in the flat where he stayed for the recording of the record, when it happened. I got to do cardiac massage, we called the Samu, who arrived very fast, but when they arrived, he had already died."
The solo release was targeted for release in the 1st Quarter of 2018 via Century Media Records.
