On Thursday morning the metal community lost a family member. Mitch Lucker, the 28-year-old front man of Suicide Silence, was killed early Thursday morning due to substantial injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident in Orange County, California. Regardless of if you are a fan of the band or not, Mitch was a fantastic front man and one of the best deathcore front men around.
Since 2002, Mitch had been the front man for the band Suicide Silence and it is tragic to hear this news. I had the good fortune of seeing them perform twice; both times loving the live show they put on. His presence as front man was stellar; it’s going to be hard to imagine where Suicide Silence will go from here. The reasoning behind the accident is unclear as of now but this will be figured out as time goes on. Our deepest condolences go out to the family, friends, band-mates, and fans of Lucker. As Lucker put in one of his song, “You only live one life, for a very short time. So make every second divine”
