Second Statement By Avicii’s Family Implies The Producer’s Death Was By Suicide

Avicii‘s unfortunate demise took the entire dance music community by shock. The young Swedish DJ/producer was found dead in Muscat, Oman on 20th April, and tributes for the ‘Wake Me Up‘ hitmaker have been pouring in ever since.

While Tim Bergling’s family had issued a statement just a couple of days back, their second announcement implies that the official cause of death of the producer, unfortunately, was suicide.

Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.

He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.

Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.

We love you,

Your family
