SUICIDE SILENCE To Fans: "Please do not purchase any bootleg RIP shirts from eBay or other online stores" - Official Mitch Lucker RIP T-shirt To Be Unveiled Soon!
Last week, the Heavy Music world was struck by the very sad news that Mitchell Adam Lucker passed away at the young age of 28 (More information HERE). 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.
The remaining members of the band have asked their fans to refrain from purchasing bootleg merchandise to honor Lucker. An official t-shirt and memorial fund is being set up and will be announced this week.
"We appreciate everyone trying to help out, but there is no existing fund at this time. Please check back here for official updates," the group wrote on its Facebook page. "Please do not purchase any bootleg RIP shirts from eBay or other online stores. We want to ensure that those of you who wish to make such purchases will have your money going to the right place and that you’ll receive a quality commemorative product. An official t-shirt and donation fund will be surfacing this week and nothing officially connected to the cause currently exists. Please continue to check this page to keep informed."
Here is a video we shot in the dark (with a camera light) that features our founder Jo Schüftan sharing his story about the hugest hurricane in the last 100 years (image gallery HERE) and discussing the impact that Mitch's death had within the entire music world.
HERE are reactions from the Heavy Music community!
