Jon Bunch, vocalist of Sense Field, and formerly of Further Seems Forever has passed away at the age of 46. Jon was also in a new band called Lucky Scars, who recently signed with Spartan Records and released an EP in October. The sad news was confirmed by Lucky Scars publicist as well as Rise Records. 46 is just too damn young, so sad. Hearts go out to his family, friends and band mates.
We've lost a member of the Spartan family and one of our musical heroes. There's a light up ahead. RIP Jon Bunch. https://t.co/zFLac06kVF

Alternative Press wrote about the news:
Bunch became the vocalist of Sense Field in 1991, which is when the band evolved from their previous moniker of Reason To Believe. Sense Field released five full-length albums between 1994 and 2003. They originally broke up in 2004, only to reunite for shows in 2012.
Bunch joined Further Seems Forever in 2004. He recorded one record with the band: Hide Nothing, which was released on Tooth & Nail Records. He parted ways with the band in 2006.
In 2013, Bunch fronted War Generation, a band featuring Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster member Brad Lehmann. They released a sole studio album, Start Somewhere, Never Surrender, later that year via Rise Records. Most recently, he launched the band Lucky Scars, who were signed to Spartan Records. The label posted about his passing, as well.
