We have sad news to report as Norman Killeen, former drummer for Canadian metalcore outfit Threat Signal, has passed away at the age of 38. The stickman died on Aug. 25 and the family has expressed the desire to keep the details under wraps for the time being.

Killeen performed on Threat Signal's sophomore record, Vigilance, in 2009 and was a member of the group between 2007 and 2010. A Facebook group, Rest in Paradise Norman Killeen, has been created for family and friends to celebrate their memories of the drummer. One post made by the group that includes a comment from Norman's wife reads, "His family has decided since Normie was such a private person there will be no viewing or funeral but me being his wife and knowing how people loved and respected him, I am going to do a huge fundraiser gathering for all who knew him, live music, whoever wants to jam, food, booze, prizes, all proceeds will go towards our sons education and our trip to NYC to spread his ashes !!! Stay posted for confirmation!!"

Threat Signal vocalist and sole remaining original member Jon Howard commented on the loss on his Facebook page, stating, "I'll see you in the next life brother... RIP Norm" as seen in the post below.

Killeen was also a member of Dyed in the Wool and Elevator 22, but had not released any recorded music with either group during his tenures in the bands.

Loudwire extends our deepest condolences to the Killeen family and all of his bandmates and friends.
