The Vamps Tragically Lose Two Team Members in the Paris Attacks
On Friday, November 13, 2015, at least 129 innocent people were murdered in a series of terrorist attacks throughout the city of Paris, France. As we learn the details of what actually occurred throughout the City of Lights last week, we are also starting to hear about what matters the most — the stories of the victims of the massacre. While hundreds of friends and families lost loved ones in the senseless tragedy, two of those victims are being mourned by British band, The Vamps.
According to the group’s Facebook page, two of the people who were killed at the Eagles of Death Metal concert in the Bataclan concert hall were members of their team. They wrote:
“We want to pass on our deepest condolences to the families and friends of Thomas and Marie who were a huge part of The Vamps team in France and who tragically passed away Friday night in Paris. They will be sorely missed by us and all that knew them. Brad, James, Connor and Tristan.”
According to The Mirror, Marie Mosser, 24, and Thomas Ayad, 32, were employees of Universal Music Group, the band’s record label. The 24-year-old was a marketing manager who traveled with Tristan, Brad, James and Connor when they would come to France and the 32-year-old was a music producer for Mercury Music Group.
In addition to posting their condolences on Facebook, one of The Vamps also took to his personal Twitter to pay his respects.
Absolutely devastated to lose incredibly talented and welcoming members of our French record label last night. Incomprehensible #paris
