The musician had been in Wisconsin for a charity event and was scheduled to perform this weekend.

Last night, he rehearsed until about 1:00 a.m. local time and then went back to his hotel room, which was adjoined to his father Darrell‘s room.

According to reports, Darrell was woken up by detectives around 9:00 a.m. and informed that Matt had passed away overnight — with prescription pills allegedly being involved — although more is not known as this time.

Roberts had left 3 Doors Down back in 2012 due to health issues, but this is unforeseen.

RIP to Matt, and our sincere condolences to all the family, friends, and loved ones reeling after this loss.
