It’s been very hard to speak on this, so please forgive us for taking a bit of time. We needed to take the weekend to process the news of Jack Tericloth’s passing.
In the years that Alternative Tentacles Records has existed, we’ve had to say goodbye to far too many friends and family, and it never gets easier. If anything it gets harder.
It has been our honor to have had the opportunity to work Jack and The World/Inferno Friendship Society. We are devastated at his passing and the heartbreaking void we are left with in his absence. The World/Inferno Friendship Society has always been a dark, beautiful, effortlessly cool band that above all was punk as hell. No one personified that more than Jack himself. We fear we may not see his like again.
We are however grateful that we have his incredible voice, his beautiful lyrics, and his passion to remember him by. He leaves behind an incredible legacy, and we are thankful we could be a small part of sharing it with all of you.
Thank you, Jack.
Thank you for your music. Thank you for your songs. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for being our friend. Thank you for being a part of our family. We will miss you.
If you like, please take a listen to this bATcast interview we did in February 2020, just before the pandemic hit with Jack and the rest of the band, to take a moment to get to know just how incredible these people are and hear Jack talk about his band in his own words.
