RIP to the legendary EDM artist, Avicii. He passed away on April 20th and his family has now spoken out saying it was an apparent suicide and they just hope he found the peace he was looking for.
Statement From Avicii's Family
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions.
An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.
He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness.
He could not go on any longer.
He wanted to find peace.
Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed.
The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
Avicii was born Tim Bergling in Stockholm, Sweden. He was just 28 years old when he passed.
