Colin McQuillan Passes Away

Colin McQuillan, the lead singer for Belfast based Street Punk band Runnin’ Riot, has passed away. Band members Marty, Ralph and Eden, made the announcement today saying:

We are devastated to announce that our brother and comrade Colin passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning. Anyone who knew Colin knows his passion for music and his love for Runnin’ Riot and our family/fans. We would like to thank Lars and The Old Firm Casuals for their unwavering support at this time, and pulling the tour would never have been an option for Colin. So with our blessing the show must go on. For now our priority is getting Colin home to the arms of Belfast town. Our love and thoughts go out to Nikki and Colin’s extended family. Sleep well tonight mate.

We at Irish Punk would like Colins family, friends and bandmates to know our thoughts are with them. Colins was an incredible talent, and will be deeply missed.
