Marbles for Eyes guitarist Matthew Smith passed away March 11 at the age of 28. The Akron, Ohio, native had just finished performing a Youngstown gig with his band when he suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness; attempts to revive him failed, and Smith later died at a local hospital.

The U2- and Coldplay-influenced Marbles for Eyes released their debut album, ‘Watertowers Are the Devil,’ in 2008. A second album was reportedly in the works at the time of Smith's death.
