Can’t excactly say I was shocked to hear that Carl Crack died, guess his life style came with a General Surgeons warning. Sad though, both to those close to him and all the people who enjoyed the music he was creating as a member of ATR. Found this as NME:
ATARI TEENAGE RIOT founder member CARL CRACK has died.

He was found in his Berlin apartment on September 6.

Little is known about the exact details of his death, but it is believed there was a huge deterioration in his health tied to years of over abuse of alcohol and pills.

Crack, who had just turned 30 in May, had a history of mental illness. The band had taken a one year break to allow him time to seek psychiatric help. It is understood he and ATR mainman Alec Empire hadn’t spoken in a year, but had been emailing each other recently.
