While Lost Lands has already put out a statement regarding the two confirmed deaths during the festival this year, Excision has just put out a statement of his own. Lost Lands is like his child in many ways, so it makes sense that he would take these deaths so seriously in his own heart.

“I apologize for my delay in addressing this on a personal level, I was and am still crushed by this, and honestly did not know what to say,” he writes.

One of the deceased has been identified as Mario Symborski, who passed as a result of complications from pre-existing heart issues and MDMA. The other victim has not yet been identified.

The responses to Excision on Twitter have been ones of support.

There will likely be another statement from Lost Lands or Excision in the coming weeks.
