Carey Lander – RIP


A fine agosto la decisione. I Camera Obscura si fermavano perchè Carey Lander aveva iniziato una dura battaglia contro il terribile male (“Keyboard player Carey Lander is undergoing treatment for cancer, and the band has decided to shelve all work commitments for the time being”). A distanza di un mese e mezzo la notizia che non avremmo mai voluto dare. Carey Lander è morta all’età di 32 anni.

It is with the greatest sadness, that we must share the news that Carey passed away peacefully this morning after her illness with cancer. We have lost our friend and band mate, and our deepest sympathy goes out to her partner Kenny, and to all her family and friends.

She was touched by the way you all got behind her campaign for Sarcoma UK and you can still donate here:

We shall be continuing to help promote the campaign on her behalf.

She was left in doubt how much you all loved and appreciated her, and we’d like to thank you all for the support and kind words you have been sending to us and her. The band, our music, and all of you who have enjoyed it over the years, meant so much to her.

Thank you all, Tracyanne, Gavin, Kenny and Lee x
