GLU Founding Member David Reilly Dead at 34

David with his friend Jason, the last photo Jason ever took of him, approximately 2 weeks before his death.

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER founding member David Reilly passed away on Sunday, October 16 due to complications from longstanding stomach problems**. He was 34 years old. Thom Hazaert of Corporate Punishment Records — the label which released Reilly's solo EP, "Inside", in 2004 — has issued the following statement regarding Reilly's death: "I just received the devastating news that my brother and friend, and the first artist signed to Corporate Punishment, David Reilly (who was also the singer and one half of one of the greatest and most underrated bands to ever exist, GOD LIVES UNDERWATER), passed away [Sunday] morning due to complications from longstanding stomach problems. David had his demons just like everyone, and he lived his life the best he could. Yeah, he fucked up, and when he fucked up it was usually big. But I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to work with someone like him, an amazing artist and visionary, who in my eyes will always be one of the most talented people to ever walk the Earth. "We had the amazing pleasure of releasing David's first and only official solo recording, 'Inside', last year, and he had recently signed a deal with Sony to release a new solo record. Unfortunately this will never happen, which might be one of the biggest travesties of all. And although he will remain forever in our hearts, David will be sorely missed by everyone at Corporate Punishment Records."

Press Release (Corporate Punishment.com)- RIP David Reilly

David Reilly Press Release. Monday October 17, 2005 Oct 17th, 2005 For Immediate Release GOD LIVES UNDERWATER VOCALIST DAVID REILLY PASSES AWAY IN PA HOSPITAL. Corporate Punishment is very sad to announce the passing of our good friend, God Lives Under vocalist David Reilly. Complications from an untreated infection are the reported cause of death for Reilly, who was pronounced dead around 5:15 AM on Sunday Oct 16th . God Lives Underwater was established in 1995 and was quickly signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings. The group had the radio hit, “From Your Mouth” from their 1998 Interscope/1500 Release, Life In The So-Called Space Age, which was heralded as a cross between Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails. Corporate Punishment Records released David's first and only solo recording, the EP Inside in 2004. Recently, David signed with Ruff Nation/Universal who were slated to release his debut full length, How Humans Rx, in early 2006. ( Some of these recordings can be found on his myspace site at www.myspace.com/cprdavidreilly ) Unfortunately this will never happen, which might be one of the biggest travesties of all. Corporate Punishment resident, Thom Hazaert, (affectionately dubbed “the Rooster” by Reilly) also spent a big chunk of the past few years serving as Reilly’s manager, most recently serving as a management and creative consultant. “I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to work with someone like him, an amazing artist and visionary, who in my eyes will always be one of the most talented people to ever walk the Earth,” says Hazaert. “David will remain forever in our hearts and will be sorely missed by everyone at CPR.” Reilly had spent much time in recent years speaking out about his longtime bout with substance abuse. He was 34.

New track from david w/some collabo - "my till tomorrow"
Audio Track Update from Pushead, on enjoyglu.com:


David put this track together up in nyc in between producing brittany garrison's album

the track is called "my till tomorrow" and will most likely be featured on his full-length solo album. here's what he had to say about it:

"another break-up song. i felt the breakup desrved some distortion and extra production, and i feel it was a good move. this is just a taste of what my solo record will be like. i know i said i was gonna stay acoustic, but goddamnit, i forgot how nice it is to "speak up"

7.23.2004 - God Lives Underwater street date is September 28! Pre-order now!

God Lives Underwater will release its long-awaited album, Up Off The Floor, on September 28, 2004. This album is one of the most moving and heartfelt epic journeys. More announcements coming. Pre-order here!

7.20.2004 - GLU prepares for new release and David Reilly speaks!

God Lives Underwater frontman David Reilly recently finished a solo
acoustic tour and will continue with more dates closer to the Up Off
The Floor release date. David recently spoke to Megaforce about his
songs and lyrics: "The driving impetus for the songs was quite
personal. Jeff got married and I tried to get clean. So Jeff and I
started out with a very positive writing perspective. My being clean
lasted about 3 months and as it deteriorated, the songs became about
a struggle and not any kind of victory, and then eventually about a
denial and a total loss."

7.20.2004 - Release ofthe album from the GLU side project, "Heavy" being

"there is INDEED an albums worth of HEAVY material.the quality of the
album is sonically inconsistent, but the songs are some of my
favorites (i think).Jeff might have a DAT with that material, but its
been years, so i wouldnt be surprised if its missing. I will ask next
time I talk to him. If he knows where those songs are, i will try to
get CORPORATE PUNISHMENT to package and sell it.The one thing I
remember about it is the other songs sound different than the 2 youve
already heard. i played all live instruments on it, like drums bass
and guitar and jeff played guitar and co-wrote the songs with me. we
went to a friends studio to record it in 1996 between tours.I will
find out. im just as curious as you, cause i dont remember it much.
who knows, i dont remeber making "happy?" either, but it turned out
to be one of my faves.the end.august 18th coming up faster and
faster. that will be my one year anniversary being clean/sober.carry
on kids....." -David Reilly,on EnjoyGLU.com

7.8.2004 - David Reilly will be releasing some samples of some songs that he's
been working on with Britney Garrison in Bolivar NY this last month.
Here's what he said on ENjoyGLU.com:

"i got new music coming soon. also noteworthy, i plan on putting some music by another artist im producing up for listening on my site in the days to come. im still
in upstate new york producing, and may likely stay here in order to
work on this production thing, and my new record..."
