Nearly one year after Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker passed away, the band has confirmed that they will continue on with a new member behind the mic. Rumors have been spreading about who the new vocalist would be, and now Suicide Silence have offered a clue with a recording of 'You Only Live Once' featuring the mystery singer.
The past year has been a difficult one for Suicide Silence, who lost their frontman Mitch Lucker in a tragic motorcycle crash on Halloween night. In the period since, the band have been mourning his loss, starting with a major memorial show last fall featuring a number of rock's top names, then in private.
The lineup for the Mitch Lucker Memorial Show Friday night (Dec. 21) was already pretty stacked, but the revelation that there would be surprise guests had many in the audience speculating who that might be. By the end of the night, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, Machine Head's Robb Flynn and Soulfly's Max Cavalera had turned up to honor the late Suicide Silence frontman, making the show even more memorable.
The cameras will be rolling when the members of Suicide Silence and their all-star lineup of guest vocalists team up for a memorial concert to salute the band's late singer, Mitch Lucker. The vocalist died in a motorcycle crash Halloween night and the idea of the show is to not only pay tribute to the singer, but to also raise money for the future education of Lucker's daughter, Kenadee.
A benefit concert in memory of Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker will be held on Friday (Dec. 21) at the Fox Theater in Pomona, Calif., and the latest batch of guest vocalists has been announced. Phil Bozeman (Whitechapel), Austin Carlile (Of Mice & Men), Cameron "Big Chocolate" Argon and Ricky Hoover (Ex-Suffokate) have all been added to the bill.
The surviving members of Suicide Silence have announced a special benefit show for Mitch Lucker’s family this December, and all of the proceeds from the concert will go toward the education of Lucker's 5-year-old daughter, Kenadee. The band will perform live, and a different singer will fill in for Lucker for each song. No word yet on who these special vocalists will be, but we’ll keep you posted.
One of the more tragic deaths of the year occurred on Halloween night when Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker perished in a motorcycle accident, leaving behind a wife and young daughter. The rock community has rallied around the Lucker family and the Unite the United charitable organization is the latest to help out.
