Known for their catchy 2000 hit Butterfly from their debut album, the group rose to fame after their single topped the music charts worldwide.

Following their success, the five-member band broke up temporarily after their 2002 album release before re-forming in 2007 to release a third album.

Shellshock had dated actress Soleil Moon Frye in 2022 and was arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles months following their split.

The singer is survived by three sons.
