Mick Morris, formerly of Eighteen Visions, xCLEARx, and Bleeding Through, has passed away at the age of 35. Morris, more commonly known as MickDeth, passed away in his sleep Sunday June 2nd from a pre-existing heart condition after being in and out of hospital.
From Alternative Press:
Morris, also known as “MickDeth” in social media circles, was the proud father of a very young son, Jude. A huge Beatles fan, Mick’s son’s name was inspired by “Hey Jude,” just as his own parents had named him after Mick Jagger.
Morris had recently relocated to his hometown of Salt Lake City, but in recent Tweets, had talked about moving back to Southern California. The guitarist for SLC vegan straight edge band xClearx, Morris had initially come to Orange County a decade ago to join Eighteen Visions, touring behind the Vanity album and staying in the band through both major label records.
Morris was also at one time the bass player for Bleeding Through. Following the dissolution of 18 Visions, he toured as a tech for Hatebreed, worked for Century Media Records and the Sumerian Records-owned SoundCheck Hollywood. He often communicated with fans online about his days in 18V, whom he hoped would reunite. A Tweet posted just hours before he died mentioned his excitement for this year’s Rockstar Mayhem tour.
