Gord Downie, lead singer of Canadian music group the Tragically Hip, has died at the age of 53, RadarOnline.com has learned. "I thought I was going make it through this, but I'm not".

While at university, he met Paul Langlois, Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair and Johnny Fray, and they formed The Tragically Hip, which started out as a cover band.

According to a statement from his bandmates, he passed away yesterday evening surrounded by his family.

He said in a written statement that "Downie uncovered and told the stories of Canada".

He was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015, but did not make the diagnosis public until spring previous year, following which the band released a new album, "Man Machine Poem", in June. Tickets for the 2016 summer tour sold out nearly immediately, culminating in a national broadcast of the band's final stop at Kingston, Ontario. They have received numerous Canadian music awards, including 14 Juno awards, the equivalent of the Grammy in Canada.

Outside his work with the band, Gord Downie released five solo albums - his first, Coke Machine Glow, arrived in 2001 - and collaborated with an array of artists including Buck 65, Fucked Up, Dallas Green, Alexisonfire and The Sadies.

Downie is survived by his wife and four children.

For more than 30 years, the singer-songwriter wrote countless hits such as, "Bobcaygeon", "Ahead By a Century", "Courage", and "New Orleans is Sinking".

"At home, he worked just as tirelessly at being a good father, son, brother, husband and friend". Thank you for all the help and support over the past two years.
