On Sunday morning, local musician Corey Bernard passed away suddenly at 22. The New Jersey native and multi-instrumentalist spent the last few years playing bass in The Superweaks alongside his brother, Evan.

The announcement came from Evan via The Superweaks’ Facebook page. He wrote:

My baby brother, our bass player Corey passed away today. I loved him so much. It was incredible to be able to write music with him, play unbelievable shows with our favourite bands we could only dream of as children. I will always cherish spending countless hours bickering and farting in the van driving around the country. I will never, ever forget the experiences we have shared. Thank you for always challenging me to be a better person. I will always love you Corey.

Since then, an outpouring of love and grief has been shared on social media, many posts including pictures of a large, bearded, always smiling guy. His friends and family are thanking him for constantly making them laugh, always being kind and for supporting them in following their dreams. From lifelong friends to met-him-one-time-on-tour acquaintances, everyone in Corey’s presence was immediately aware of his warmth.

Friends in Spirit of the Beehive, Tigers Jaw and Slingshot Dakota have been paying tribute on Twitter and Instagram. Join them in celebrating the life of Corey and get a glimpse of his goofy personality in the video for “Kick It” below.
