Former 3 Inches of Blood and Trial bassist Brian Redman died in a vehicular accident near his home in Tacoma, Wash., on Saturday, Sept. 26. According to posts on Blabbermouth.net, Weekly Valcano's "Spew" blog, and the Website of Doyles Public House (the latter of which he worked at as a bartender), Redman, who left the band after the release of 2004's 'Advance & Vanquish,' had recently returned to Tacoma after spending some time in Southern California.

We will report more details as they become available.
