A special package paying tribute to late METAL CHURCH singer Mike Howe is now available for pre-order from the Rat Pak Records web site. The “In Memoriam (Remembering Mike Howe)” memorial booklet and tribute shirt will only be available for a short while, so if you want one, be sure to order sooner than later.
METAL CHURCH guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof announced the package’s availability in a social media post earlier today (Tuesday, November 2). He wrote: “Many of you have asked if there would be an official Mike Howe memorial booklet & shirt, it took some time, but here it is. Hats off to the owner of Rat Pak Records for putting this amazing 60-page tribute book & shirt package together for Mike. It’s very classy to say the least! There are only going to be 500 in print so if you want one, don’t wait.”
Howe was found dead at his home in Eureka, California on July 26. According to TMZ, Howe‘s official cause of death was determined to be asphyxia due to hanging. A spokesperson for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Dept. told the site authorities are calling it a suicide. He was only 55 years old.
