Benjamin Vallé, who co-founded and played guitar in the Stockholm post-punk band Viagra Boys, has died. His bandmates confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon (October 27). He was 47. His cause of death has not been revealed.

The band shared a statement about Vallé:

Benjamin or ‘Benis’ as we knew him, spread laughter and happiness wherever he went and we will cherish the memories we have of touring the world together.

Benjamin, we love you with all of our hearts and Viagra Boys would have been nothing without you. This planet just lost one the good ones.

Vallé co-founded Viagra Boys with Sebastian Murphy, Martin Ehrencron, Oskar Carls, Henrik Höckert, and Tor Sjödén, releasing Street Worms with the group in 2018. He also joined the band on last year’s surprise Common Sense EP. He did not appear on the group’s most recent record, January’s Welfare Jazz. He was not an active member of the group at the time of his death, and the band have not shared the circumstances of his departure. Prior to Viagra Boys, Vallé was a member of post-rock outfit Pig Eyes and the metal band Nine.
