Lord Fraktal (BLACKDRONE INC., EMREVOID) has issued the following update on his ALIEN SYNDROME 777 project, also featuring Nihil (JOEY HOPKINS MIDGET FACTORY, BLACKDRONE INC.):"I deeply regret to announce that my bandmate and friend Joey Hopkins, a.k.a. Nihil, passed away a few days ago. It has been a terrible discover for me, shocking. I was musically collaborating with him for about two years and he has been surely the most talented musician I worked with. Now, it will be hard to finish the promo without his contribution. I will do my best to complete it but surely it will NEVER sound like with him on board, never. RIP, my friend, you giant of midgets." Joey Hopkins passed away on December 31, 2008 at the age of 26.
