Foreign Beggars vocalist Ebow Graham, aka Metropolis, has died age 41.

The band made the announcement of his passing social media on Sunday evening.

A JustGiving page has been started to raise £50k to help Ebow's 10-year-old son.

A statement on the page reads:

"In his recent years, he had been on a spiritual journey and had really been exploring his relationship with existence and the universe, only last week he was in a very serene and happy place with his life, family and artistic vision. Some of the last words we heard him say were ’The only way humanity will heal is when it understands that we are all Gaia and truly understand we are all one’. These words couldn’t ring truer for us, even in light of his passing."

Foreign Beggars formed in 2002 and released 11 albums. Their last, 'Matriarchy, came out late last year.

The band were prolific in the studio and collaborated with the likes of Riko Dan, Alix Perez, Noisia, as well as releasing on Deadmau5's mau5trap.
