Rock Sound is deeply saddened to report the death of Mitch Lucker, vocalist for Suicide Silence. He was 28 years old.
He was killed in a motorcycle crash this morning in California. Rock Sound has confirmed his death with the Orange County coroner's office, and because an autopsy has not yet taken place there is no official cause of death.
All at Rock Sound would like to pass on our sympathies to Mitch's friends and family.
