Rocker Dave Brockie has died at the age of 50.

The GWAR frontman's body was discovered at his home on Sunday evening. No further details about his death have been released as WENN goes to press.

His former bandmate Chris Bopst, who know writes for Style Weekly, has revealed on the publication's website, "I wish it was a joke. Everyone is in shock."

Brockie, also known by his stage name Oderus Urungus, was one of the founding members of the heavy rock act, famous for dressing up in monster costumes during their performances.

His death comes three years after guitarist Cory Smoot passed away as GWAR were making preparations to begin a Canadian tour in 2011.
