Just discovered this sad news about the sudden death of Polish progressive rock band Riverside’s guitar player through their website:

“In our deepest pain and disbelief we would like to inform you that our dearest friend and brother Piotr Grudzinski has passed away this morning. We kindly ask you to respect the privacy of his family and friends.”

Piotr Grudzinski was just 40.

The Polish band Riverside have only released their new album Love, Fear And The Time Machine (2015) and were about to start their 2016 tour.

Riverside are probably the best known Polish rock band. And since they sing in English they have a large folowing both here in Poland and throughout the world.

Here’s a sample of their music. Here they are playing live in 2014 for the Polish radio station Trójka.

The cause of death is yet to be released.
