Depeche Mode have announced the cause of death of Andrew Fletcher after he passed away at the age of 60 last month. The Nottingham -born keyboardist was a founding member of the much-loved band.

In a statement shared on social media, the band revealed the dad-of-two died due to an aortic dissection – a tear in a main artery from his heart. “A couple weeks ago we received the result from the medical examiners, which Andy’s family asked us to share with you now. Andy suffered an aortic dissection while at home on 26 May,” the statement reads.

“So, even though it was far, far too soon, he passed naturally and without prolonged suffering.” They continued to reveal they had marked their bandmate’s passing with “celebration of Andy’s life … a beautiful ceremony and gathering with a few tears, but filled with the great memories of who Andy was, stories of all of our times together, and some good laughs”, The Mirror reports.

The band announced Andrew had passed away via social media on May 26, writing at the time: “We are shocked and filled with overwhelming sadness with the untimely passing of our dear friend, family member, and bandmate Andy “Fletch” Fletcher.

“Fletch had a true heart of gold and was always there when you needed support, a lively conversation, a good laugh, or a cold pint.

“Our hearts are with his family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and respect their privacy in this difficult time.”
