Bliss n Eso have released a statement following yesterday's tragic death during the filming of the group's newest film clip.
We are devastated about the tragic passing of Johann Ofner. Out of respect to Johann’s family, friends and the on-going investigation we don’t feel it is appropriate for us to make further comment at this time.
We chose not to disclose Johann’s details yesterday to ensure police had time to contact his family and friends, however this information is now clearly in the public forum.
We continue to express our support and condolences to the family and friends of those so deeply affected by this sad event and appreciate your on-going understanding in this incredibly difficult time.
As there have been many varying media reports about what took place yesterday our management team are in the process of issuing further known information to the media.
Much love, Bliss, Eso and Izm
