The life of a rocker is sometimes a hard one, and while we're not sure how he did it, Suicide Silence singer Mitch Lucker is currently suffering through the pain of a broken elbow.

The vocalist served up a rather gruesome photo of his elbow via Instagram with the caption, "This is a picture of what came out of my broken elbow. Yep … that's a lil' chunk of bone." The gruesome pic can also be seen below.

Earlier this week, the group posted on Facebook that they were cancelling a performance at Geo's "due to circumstances beyond our control." They didn't go into detail as to why, but Lucker's photo might be a hint. They added in their posting that the next two performances were happening, so even with the banged up elbow, the show must go on.

The band's next date was scheduled to be last night in Odessa, Texas. Suicide Silence have spent their summer on the road with the Word Alive, Dance Gavin Dance and others as part of the All Stars Tour.
