Shellshock’s family said the following to The Sun that the artist’s “dedication to his music and fans never wavered.”

The family continued “Seth struggled with addiction throughout his life. He did so on a very public platform, which was particularly challenging. God knows he tried so hard to beat his demons but sadly he lost his battle. Our hearts are shattered by his loss. Seth’s larger-than-life presence touched so many. Seth was a troubled soul, but he was a beautiful one and he had a heart of gold.”

The band Crazy Town was popular because of the single titled “Butterfly” which was released in 1999 and topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2001. Their debut album titled “The Gift of Game,” which was released in 1999 made sales of over 1.6 million units, however, the group broke up in 2003 after their success declined in subsequent music projects. 

Photographer Mike Azira wrote the following about the deceased: “RIP old friend… remember you best as a kid in a skateboard with the entire world in front of you… sending love to your family.”
