RIP John Pike

John Pike, drummer for up-and-coming indie rock band Ra Ra Riot, was found dead in Massachusetts this weekend. The 23-year-old went missing early Saturday morning (June 2) after a party in Fairhaven.

Local authorities found Pike's body yesterday in the waters of Buzzard's Bay, a location less than a mile from the party. The unsigned group had performed at the Living Room in Providence, R.I., the night prior.

There is no information yet pertaining to the band's remaining shows this summer, including its stints with Tokyo Police Club and Mason Proper.
