News: Ben Aucott from Mage Passes Away

magelogo

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ben Aucott, guitarist for Scumscene-favourites Mage.

Ben’s passing is a figurative gut-punch that’s going to sting for quite some time. I’ve been an enormous fan of Mage since their first album and they’ve been kind enough to personally thank us in the liner notes for their last two releases. It’s always been a pleasure working with them and it pains me to say that we send our sympathies to Ben’s friends and family during this difficult time.

If there’s any positives to take from all this then let it be known that Ben managed to marry the love of his life just over a week ago. Ben’s a hero in my eyes.
