Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Suicide Silence’s Mitch Lucker

Suicide Silence
Mary Ouellette,

Suicide Silence frontman Mitch Lucker has died at the age of 28 on the morning of Nov. 1 after a motorcycle accident in Huntington Beach, Calif. on Halloween night.

The death of Lucker shook the metal community like few have in the past. As the vocalist of one of deathcore’s leading acts, fans have come out to support the family, friends and bandmates of Lucker with incredible numbers. Lucker’s wife revealed that the vocalist was an alcoholic and drove while under the influence. Lucker’s wife begged him not to leave, but Mitch chose to head out the door, which unfortunately led to his demise.

The surviving members of Suicide Silence released the following statement:

“There’s no easy way to say this. Mitch passed away earlier this morning from injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. This is completely devastating to all of us and we offer our deepest condolences to his family. He will be forever in our hearts.

R.I.P. Mitchell Adam Lucker. We love you, brother.”
