Fans and fellow artists can finally rest now that cause of death revealed in Avicii case

A week after Avicii’s untimely death at just 28, the family of Swedish DJ, born Tim Bergling, released a statement regarding the cause of his passing.

They shared that he was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers. When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance between being happy and being able to do what he loves most, which is music … He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.

Another talanted artist lost to suicide.

The family thanked fans and artists worldwide for their support and tributes. There were public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella, and moments of silence across the globe.

Depression and anxiety are two things many music artists have dealt with including Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Chester Bennington, and many more. Can you relate?

It is never too late to get help from a trusted doctor, family, or close friends. You are not alone!
