Jack White has canceled part of his tour following the death of his band’s keyboardist, Isaiah “Ikey” Owens.

Owens, 38, was found dead in his Puebla, Mexico, hotel room Tuesday morning. According to TMZ, the keyboard player had played with White’s band at a concert the night before.

Out of respect for Owens, the band said Tuesday that they would cancel their remaining tour dates in Mexico. The band was scheduled to perform in Guadalajara and Monterrey this week, per the AP.

“We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist,” said the band in a statement posted on Facebook.

According to a statement released by White's publicist Wednesday, a coroner determined that Owens died from a heart attack. "The only drugs found in his room were a small amount of marijuana," the statement said.

Owens, a California native who’d recently moved to Nashville, played in several bands during his lifetime, including The Mars Volta and the Long Beach Dub Allstars. According to the Rolling Stones, the keyboardist started working with White in 2012.

“I enjoy what I do, it’s really good,” Owens told the OC Register earlier this year. “I’m really happy with the people I’ve gotten to work with.”

This post has been updated with information about Owens' death.
