The band announced the news of Farhad’d demise on social media. However, the post did not mention the cause of Farhad’s death.

The post on the band’s official Facebook page said, “The magnificent Farhad Humayun left us for the stars this morning. Stoic in the face of challenges, uncompromising in his values, generous to a fault, witty as hell! Fadi was far too ahead of his time, both in spirit and art.”

“He would want us to celebrate his life, so we request his family, friends, and fans to honour him and say a prayer for him today. We can almost hear him say these words by David Bowie: ‘I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring’. Godspeed our gentle giant and thank you for creating a Riot.”


Leading vocalist and drummer Farhad Humayun had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in October 2018.

Following the sad news of Farhad’s demise tributes and prayers are pouring in on social media.
