R.I.P., Benjamin Curtis

Normally, when I write about a great musician passing away, they are older and have been able to long establish themselves. Benjamin Curtis, of the band School of Seven Bells, was just 35 when he passed away from T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma earlier this week.

Curtis had formed the band after meeting twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza in 2007. Together they released two albums, Alpinisms and Disconnect from Desire before Claudia left the ensemble in 2010. After her departure, they released one more album, Ghostory, in 2012.

Benjamin was diagnosed towards the beginning of 2013, but was expected to make a recovery. Unfortunately, that did not occur and he passed away on December 29. The last single released from the band before his diagnosis was "Scavenger" in 2012.

Goodbye, Ben!
