We just got word that Mitch Lucker, vocalist of the metal band Suicide Silence, has died as a result of injuries from a motorcycle accident early this morning.

According to the Press Enterprise:

the Orange County coroner’s office said Lucker was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. Thursday at UCI Medical Center in Orange County,” the reports says. “Coroner’s officials said Lucker was hospitalized after a motorcycle accident shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday. Huntington Beach police were investigating the crash and expected to release details Thursday morning.


We will have more information as this develops. Listen to The Grindhouse this Sunday night from 9pm-11pm CST for a special tribute to Lucker and more. If you have any requests, e-mail me at tai@planet1051.com.

The band just had this statement to make via their official Facebook page:

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.
