Chris Epting of AOL‘s Noisecreeep spoke to ASKING ALEXANDRIA‘s Danny Worsnop and PIERCE THE VEIL‘s Vic Fuentes this past Saturday, November 24 at the sixth annual California Metalfest at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California about SUICIDE SILENCE‘s late singer, Mitch Lucker, who died November 1, after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach on Halloween night. You can check out the footage below.
The surviving members of SUICIDE SILENCE will play a special show on December 21 at the Fox theater in Pomona, California as a tribute to Lucker. All proceeds from the event will go towards the education of Mitch‘s five-year-old daughter, Kenadee Lucker.
A funeral service for Mitch Lucker was held on November 8. The ceremony was attended by family and friends, including SUICIDE SILENCE bassist Dan Kenny, who tweeted afterwards, “Had to bury my brother today, he looked peaceful when I saw him. It was very hard but it was needed! To the fans just know Mitch loved yall”
SUICIDE SILENCE has launched a memorial fund to provide assistance to Lucker‘s family. Those who donate $20 or more will receive a commemorative t-shirt.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Lucker struck a light pole near the intersection of Main and 13th streets and was thrown from his 2013 Harley Davidson. The motorcycle continued sliding south on Main Street and struck a northbound 2007 Nissan Titan pickup.
Lucker, who was treated at the scene by paramedics, died shortly after 6 a.m. at UC Irvine Medical Center.
