The Calgary music scene was in mourning Tuesday with news that Christopher Reimer, guitarist for local noise-pop band Women, passed away in his sleep. He was 26.
Women, who had released two albums to great acclaim, had been on indefinite hiatus for more than a year since the release of their last album, Public Strain.
The group had toured the world and performed with acts ranging from Mogwai to Wire.
The cause of Reimer’s passing as well as funeral arrangements have not been announced yet. A memorial website to the singer has been created by his sister, Nikki Reimer.
