According to the National Post (via the Calgary Herald), guitarist Christopher Reimer of the acclaimed Canadian indie rock outfit Women passed away in his sleep last night. His cause of death is still unknown. He was 26.
Women have been on a hiatus since a fistfight broke out between the group at a show in 2010.
