Tony Lewis, singer and bassist of English rock band The Outfield, died at age 62.

He died “suddenly and unexpectedly” on Monday near London, according to a statement from publicist Bari Lieberman.

The Outfield formed in 1984 and remained active for about three decades. Their hits included “Your Love,” “All the Love” and “Say It Isn’t So.” “Your Love” peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986.

Lewis later went solo, dropping album “Out of the Darkness” in 2018. An EP, “Unplugged – The Acoustic Sessions,” came out in May.

“Tony’s music touched people around the globe for decades,” the statement said. His “legacy will live on forever through his beautiful family and his legendary music.”

Lewis is survived by his wife of 35 years Carol, daughters Gemma and Rosie and three grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by bandmate John Spinks, who died of liver cancer in 2014 at age 60.
