RIP David F. Reilly of God Lives Underwater 1971-2005 [21 Oct 2005|08:56am]

[ mood | disappointed ]

GLU Founding Member David Reilly Dead at 34

David with his friend Jason, the last photo Jason ever took of him, approximately 2 weeks before his death.

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER founding member David Reilly passed away on Sunday, October 16 due to complications from longstanding stomach problems**. He was 34 years old. Thom Hazaert of Corporate Punishment Records — the label which released Reilly's solo EP, "Inside", in 2004 — has issued the following statement regarding Reilly's death: "I just received the devastating news that my brother and friend, and the first artist signed to Corporate Punishment, David Reilly (who was also the singer and one half of one of the greatest and most underrated bands to ever exist, GOD LIVES UNDERWATER), passed away [Sunday] morning due to complications from longstanding stomach problems. David had his demons just like everyone, and he lived his life the best he could. Yeah, he fucked up, and when he fucked up it was usually big. But I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to work with someone like him, an amazing artist and visionary, who in my eyes will always be one of the most talented people to ever walk the Earth. "We had the amazing pleasure of releasing David's first and only official solo recording, 'Inside', last year, and he had recently signed a deal with Sony to release a new solo record. Unfortunately this will never happen, which might be one of the biggest travesties of all. And although he will remain forever in our hearts, David will be sorely missed by everyone at Corporate Punishment Records."

**His friends and family have posted on http://www.myspace.com/cprdavidreilly and http://www.myspace.com/davidssherman
that david died because he had a tooth infection that was not diagnosed, ended up bleeding while he was sleeping, and by the time he got to the hospital he was already in a deep coma and was unable to survive it.

Press Release (Corporate Punishment.com)- RIP David Reilly

David Reilly Press Release. Monday October 17, 2005 Oct 17th, 2005 For Immediate Release GOD LIVES UNDERWATER VOCALIST DAVID REILLY PASSES AWAY IN PA HOSPITAL. Corporate Punishment is very sad to announce the passing of our good friend, God Lives Under vocalist David Reilly. Complications from an untreated infection are the reported cause of death for Reilly, who was pronounced dead around 5:15 AM on Sunday Oct 16th . God Lives Underwater was established in 1995 and was quickly signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings. The group had the radio hit, “From Your Mouth” from their 1998 Interscope/1500 Release, Life In The So-Called Space Age, which was heralded as a cross between Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails. Corporate Punishment Records released David's first and only solo recording, the EP Inside in 2004. Recently, David signed with Ruff Nation/Universal who were slated to release his debut full length, How Humans Rx, in early 2006. ( Some of these recordings can be found on his myspace site at www.myspace.com/cprdavidreilly ) Unfortunately this will never happen, which might be one of the biggest travesties of all. Corporate Punishment resident, Thom Hazaert, (affectionately dubbed “the Rooster” by Reilly) also spent a big chunk of the past few years serving as Reilly’s manager, most recently serving as a management and creative consultant. “I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to work with someone like him, an amazing artist and visionary, who in my eyes will always be one of the most talented people to ever walk the Earth,” says Hazaert. “David will remain forever in our hearts and will be sorely missed by everyone at CPR.” Reilly had spent much time in recent years speaking out about his longtime bout with substance abuse. He was 34.

New merch, new member [16 Jun 2004|03:28am]

I've had a LiveJournal for years, and I've loved GLU for longer, but for some reason I never joined. Not sure why; guess I'm not a community-type guy. I joined just now because my merch from www.corporatepunishment.com finally came.

  • Large, maroon, longsleeved t-shirt.
    • Says "God Lives Underwater" on chest, has mantis on right sleeve. Both black.
  • Extra large black t-shirt
    • Blue ringer collar and sleeve hems. Says "God Lives Underwater" on chest, and has large mantis on back over the initials "GLU," all in silver.
  • Extra large maroon t-shirt
    • Says "God Lives Underwater" on chest, and has large mantis on back over the initials "GLU," all in blue.
  • Life in the So-Called Space Age poster
    • 11" x 17". Features cover art.
  • And some free shit
    • Three pink LITSCSA stickers
    • Three green David Reilly's Inside EP stickers
    • A blue-and-green car window decal featuring the words "God Lives Underwater" and a large mantis
    • Two Corporate Punishment stickers
I wish I could have gotten a hold of one of the five or so beanies they had.

Dave alive [13 May 2003|06:40pm]

i recently found myself in manayunk, PA with an old friend that you people might know and love. dave is ok. its possible their most recent album may be picked up by marginal label Locomotive Records soon. i spent a few days with him and reminisced on old times and tunes. hes still as talented and enthusiastic about his talents as ever. just a series of blows, starting with the death of monica, have been dealt to him over the past few years. give him sometime. you will hear from him again. in the meantime enjoy this snapshot that melissa took of us. dave and jeff got me into using snyths in my music, so im not just his friend, im his pupil. dave offered to participate on my record down here in atlanta at my home studio and hopefully i can give him the work and get the impeccable groove the guy possesses in return. buy the fluzee 7 ep. its got 'blaming the truth' on it, which is the best GLU song since the days of empty.
