Former Volumes Guitarist Diego Farias Has Died

Reports are coming through in the music community that Diego Farias, guitarist of Volumes has died.

Farias was a founding member of Volumes and was involved within the band since 2009. Last week, the band announced he parted ways, with a lengthy statement posted to the band’s Twitter explaining that as Farias became more successful as a producer, he didn’t have the time to invest in the band.

The band shared:

“Diego was never fired / kicked out of the band, Over the past few years, we have seen him grow in his career as a producer, and as a result, he lost the desire to tour with the band and then subsequently couldn’t further commit to the overall writing process with the group. We have had various replacement guitarists tour with the band. We wish nothing but the best of luck for Diego and know that he is on the fast track of becoming one of the most successful producers in the game.”

As yet, there has been no official statement from Volumes about Diego but Drummer Nick Irsich has tweeted, ‘This can’t be real”.

Tributes have been coming in from family and band members whom have previously worked with him.

Here at Almost Anything Media, we send our thoughts to Diego’s friends and family. He will be missed within the community.
