Sean Kennedy, Bassist With I Killed the Prom Queen and Deez Nuts, Dies at 35

Sean Kennedy, bass guitar player with Australian metalcore outfits I Killed the Prom Queen and Deez Nuts, died on Feb. 23, according to various reports. He was 35. No cause of death has been announced.

Kennedy performed on Prom Queen’s debut LP from 2003, When Goodbye Means Forever…, and its followup from 2006, Music for the Recently Deceased, which peaked at No. 27 on on the ARIA Albums Chart and saw the five-piece amass a global following.

A live album from 2008, Sleepless Nights and City Lights, was nominated for Best Independent Hard Rock/Punk Album at the AIR Awards.

When I Killed the Prom Queen disbanded, some of the pieces reformed as Deez Nuts, which released six studio albums, including the Top 20 set Word Is Bond from 2015. Kennedy also appeared on 2017’s Binge & Purgatory, and 2019’s You Got Me F***ed Up.

Former bandmate I Killed the Prom Queen Michael Crafter paid tribute to the late bass player.

“For years we stood side by side on stage or in band photos,” he wrote on social media. “We slept on floors, in vans, planes and some how managed to tour the world. Time went way to [sic] fast.”

“We experienced highs and lows on the road and after all we went through, you will always be my friend. As the years passed us by I’m glad we’ve always been there for each other.” He added, “When I called you last week I didn’t think it would be the last. I wish I could say goodbye.”

Fellow Australian metalcore standouts The Amity Affliction wrote, “Rest easy dear friend. We send all our love and thoughts to SK’s friends and family.”
