MITCH LUCKER DIES. (SUICIDE SILENCE SINGER)
SUICIDE SILENCE frontman Mitch Lucker, who died this morning (Thursday, November 1) after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash, was an avid rider who made no bones about the fact that he liked to ride fast and hard.
On October 14, Lucker tweeted a photo of himself on his bike with the caption, “Captured last night smashing down the 15 freeway at 2AM. LOL.”
In an October 3 tweet, Lucker summed up his life philosophy when he wrote, “I’d rather die riding 95 than live a life full of nothing but filthy lies.”
According to The Press-Enterprise, the Orange County coroner’s office saidLucker was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. Thursday at UCI Medical Center in Orange County.
Lucker was hospitalized after a motorcycle accident shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The 28-year-old singer lived in Huntington Beach but grew up in Riverside, California.
