American thrash metal band Suicidal Tendencies [ST] announced earlier today that their bassist Tim ”˜Rawbiz’ Williams had passed away. The cause of his death is yet to be ascertained. The bassist, who replaced longtime ST member Stephen Bruner in 2011, contributed to the band’s 2013 album, 13, their first in 13 years. Williams had previously worked with artists such as Toni Braxton, Boyz II Men and Keyshia Cole.

Suicidal Tendencies, best known for their hits such as “Institutionalized,” posted on their Facebook page about Williams’ death, “Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at its best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally.” Billboard reports that neither Williams’ cause of death nor his age are known at this time.

Williams, a Texarkana, Texas-born bassist, moved to Los Angeles after he joined Suicidal Tendencies, which currently comprises vocalist and founding member Mike Muir, guitarist Dean Pleasants, rhythm guitarist Nico Santora [who joined the band a year after Williams, in 2012] and latest recruit, drummer Thomas Pridgen, who joined earlier this year.
