From The Yellow Dogs:
For the past two years, we've lived together, worked together, created together. We were living our dream. We wanted the world to discover us as we were, a community defined by our music, our friendships, our culture and our art. This is not the way we ever imagined the world would learn of our story.
Ali Eskandarian was nearly finished with his memoir, Arash had just received political asylum from Iran and Soroush was hard at work on new Yellow Dogs material. Everything we had hoped and worked for was finally coming true…the future was so bright.

All of that ended Sunday night. We're here now, without our brothers, unable to make sense of what has happened to our family. To say we are heartbroken does not come close. These are the darkest hours of our lives.

All of us – Obash and Koory from Yellow Dogs, Ali Salehezadeh (Manager), street artists Icy and Sot and Pooya, from Free Keys – want to extend our deepest thanks for the overwhelming support, love and encouragement we've felt during this time of incredible loss. We'd like to express our deepest condolences to the families of Soroush and Arash Farazmand and Ali Eskandarian, who together share our sorrow.
