Canadian band You Say Party just released this new single. It is about former band member, drummer Devon Clifford, who died on stage, causing the band to change their name from “You Say Party! We Say Die!”
On April 16, 2010, just after the band had just finished touring the U.S. and Western Canada, drummer Devon Clifford collapsed on stage during the band’s set at The Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver. He died on April 18, reportly as a result of complications arisen from a sudden brain hemorrhage. They were slated to begin a European tour later in the month in support of XXXX, starting in Germany in April and ending in Mallorca, Spain, in June.
The band subsequently announced that they were officially dropping “We Say Die” from their name, “out of respect for [Clifford] and the evolution of life”.
