Rock singer Jamir Garcia, vocalist of the nu metal band Slapshock passed away shortly after he was found unresponsive in his Quezon City home Thursday morning. He was 42.

Born Vladimir Garcia, Jamir joined Slapshock in 1998 after original singer Reynold Munsayac left and was the voice of the band in all of their seven studio albums and two extended play recordings. Citing the Red Hot Chili Peppers as among their influences, the band quickly became fan favorites and critics darlings with Jamir, known for his charismatic stage presence, as their frontman.  

The group is best known for anthemic rock tunes like “Agent Orange,” “Get Away,” “Sigaw” and “Cariño Brutal,” among many others. As speculations arose regarding the cause of death of the rock singer, family members took to social media to request everyone to respect his memory and take down any photos related to his demise.
