BLAST FROM THE PAST: SUICIDE SILENCE Turn Into Santa Claus To Make Kids In Need Very Happy - Video Available!
California Deathcore Metallers Suicide Silence, have always been known for setting themselves apart from the competition by creating original music that conveys the bands message flawlessly. Last Christmas, the band decided to take over the role of Santa Claus and deliver presents to kids in need. Here is what the band had to say at the time:
"We sold the shirt Mitch wore in the "You Only Live Once" video and spent all of the money on toys for less fortunate kids. A very special thanks to the Variety Boys & Girls Club: Pueblo Del Sol Unit in Downtown Los Angeles for all of their cooperation. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!"
The Heavy Music world was struck earlier this year 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.
Last Friday (December 21), the remaining members of SUICIDE SILENCE - Chris Garza, Mark Heylmun, Alex Lopez and Dan Kenny - were joined by many of Heavy Music's finest to pay tribute to their frontman Mitch Lucker. See some video footage HERE!
Here is one of the last interviews that Mitch ever conducted:
