Eyehategod Drummer Joey LaCaze Passes Away. R.I.P.

Joey LaCaze, drummer for Eyehategod, passed away over the weekend. He was 42. The cause of death is currently unknown.

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe remembered LaCaze, posting an image of LaCaze on his Instagram account on Saturday and writing, “Rest in peace, Joey Lacaze, drummer of EYEHATEGOD, who died this afternoon down in Louisiana. Joey posted this picture (probably from ’94 or ’95) a few months ago — EYEHATEGOD used to stay with me when they were in RVA — they were amazing to watch, & will always be one of my favorite bands of all time — we became friends & I would always throw it down for them when they came to stay…. He was a funny, funny, man & I’m so sorry he’s gone. I hope you are at peace, bro.”

Before LaCaze’s death, Eyehategod had scheduled three shows to celebrate their 25th anniversary as a band and were 15 songs deep into recording a new album, their first in over a decade.
