Kittie bassist Trish Doan has passed away at the age of 31. The news was revealed on the band’s official Facebook page. This is what they had to say:

“It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan.

“Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band. She was our blood, our sister and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated.

“We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family’s privacy during this difficult time.”

Former Kittie bassist Ivy Vujic Jenkins had this to say about it:”Anyone who has ever met Trish Doan knows that she was one of the sweetest, kindest, most down-to-earth people on this planet. I loved seeing her beautiful photos of Australian sunsets and city skylines, and nerding out about bass gear and geeky tech stuff.

“Everyone loved Trish more than she ever realized. She has left an imprint on so many lives. Her memory and legacy will outlive her physical form for many years to come.

“Much love to Trish’s family, friends and all of the world that was touched by her presence.

“Trish, you are loved and greatly missed.”

Trish Doan was born in Gwangju, South Korea. She was a part of Kittie from 2005-2007 and then joined back up with the band in 2012. We would like to send our deepest and sincere condolences to her family and friends throughout this difficult time.
