As previously announced, 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 their late singer, Mitch Lucker. All proceeds from the event will go towards the education of Mitch's five-year-old daughter, Kenadee Lucker. The concert announcement was made last night (Saturday, November 24) during the sixth annual California Metalfest at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California. Here is the official event poster:
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.
Speaking to the audience, SUICIDE SILENCE guitarist Mark Heylmun
said (see video HERE), "We fucking lost our brother; I'm sure you all
know that. We all miss him more than anything in the fucking world."
The remaining members of the band have set up a memorial fund for
Mitch Lucker’s family following the singer’s tragic death last week.
Here is their statement regarding this matter:
who wish to donate can do so via the link below, with donations of $20
