Wet Nuns frontman Rob Graham has paid tribute to late drummer Alexis 'Leki' Gotts.
Graham reports on the band’s Facebook page that Gotts took his own life after a “long and terribly difficult battle.”
Graham says: “It’s with a deep sadness and a heavy heart that I try to find the words to express the deep sense of grief that I feel as I come to terms with the loss of my friend, band mate and brother Leki.
“It’s only really the sense of duty to you all as fans of our band that I wrote this now as I think it will take a good while to really understand what has happened.
“Leki took his own life as an end to a long and terribly difficult battle. I miss him. I don’t think I will ever stop missing him. Love to you all.”
The Sheffield rockers released one, self-titled album and split in 2013, with Leki going on to join a new band called Baba Naga.
