Bryan Patrick vocalist of MANILLAR ROAD posted a message earlier today stating the Mark “The Shark” Shelton, mainman and driving force behind the band, is no longer with us.

July 27th 2018
I’m very sorry to announce today that my long time brother and Best Friend since 1981 has passed through the Halls of Valhalla.
Mark W. Shelton may you Rest In Peace!
There will be more information within the next couple of days. There will be a GO FUND ME page set up in order to get Mark back home to his family.
My heart is shattered. Please take time today to love your loved ones and hold them close.
Hours before MANILLA ROAD have performed at Headbangers Open Air Festival which makes these news sound even more unreal.
Rest In Peace Mark and THANK YOU for everything.
UP THE HAMMERS & DOWN THE NAILS
MAY THE LORDS OF LIGHT BE WITH YOU
HAIL THE MANILLAN EMPIRE
HAIL TO THE BRETHREN OF THE HAMMER
