Mu­si­cian Jeremy Brown, a gui­tarist for Scott Wei­land & the Wild­abouts, died a day be­fore the re­lease of the band’s de­but al­bum. He was 34 years old.

Pub­li­cist Diana Baron didn’t give a rea­son for Brown’s death at his home in Venice, Cal­i­for­nia, on Mon­day. The band’s al- bum, “Blaster,” was re­leased on Tues­day.

Wei­land, the for­mer front­man for Stone Tem­ple Pi­lots, posted a state­ment on Face­book hon­or­ing his friend and col­lab­o­ra­tor, whom he met in 2008. He said he grew con­cerned when Brown didn’t show up for a re­hearsal for their al­bum re­lease show on Mon­day.
