    John Pike, the 23-year-old drummer for indie buzz band Ra Ra Riot, was found dead yesterday in the waters of Buzzard's Bay, off the coast of Massachusetts. Pike was last seen in the early hours of Saturday morning, when he walked away from a house party in the town of Sconticut Neck. A police dive team found the body about a mile away after a 24-hour search.

    Although there was no evidence of foul play, police are conducting a criminal investigation into the cause of Pike's death.

    Ra Ra Riot performed Friday night at the Living Room in Providence, Rhode Island, the first show of what was to be a 20-city tour. There is no word at this time as to what will happen to the rest of those tour dates. A post on the band's website simply said, "We will always love and miss you, John."
