CONFIRMED: Type O Negative Frontman Pete Steele Has Died
  |  @   |  

Reports have surfaced stating that Pete Steele, frontman for Brooklyn-based metal band Type O Negative, died on the evening of April 14, 2010 from heart failure.

Rumors of Steele’s death first arose late Wednesday night on Facebook from posts by friends of the musician’s family who had been notified. Just before midnight, Fused TV VJ Juliya Chernetsky, aka Mistress Juliya, posted to her Twitter account confirming that the 48-year-old musician had died. “He passed of heart failure today. Just spoke to Kenny,” Chernetsky wrote, presumably referring to Steele’s Type O bandmate guitarist Kenny Hickey.

As of 2AM EST, no other information has surfaced and no official statements released. We’ll update this story as soon as more details are available.

[UPDATE: The reports have now been confirmed. See below for full updates. Statement to come from family and the band later today.]
