Dubbed as “one of those bands that were gonna be around a long time” by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman himself, the sudden and tragic death of Suicide Silence’s frontman Mitch Lucker still weighs heavily on many of the metal world’s minds.
Countless tributes and condolences have poured in from fans and fellow band members alike in memory of the prominent death metal figure. The surviving members of the band are set to play a show specially dedicated to Lucker on December 21 at Pomona’s Fox Theatre in addition to setting up Kenadee Lucker’s Education Fund to provide assistance to Lucker's family.
The recent California Metalfest which featured many of Lucker’s personal acquaintances and colleagues was also another huge platform for them to perform in his name. Chris Epting of AOL's Noisecreeep then took this opportunity to speak with members of Of Mice & Men, Pierce The Veil and Asking Alexandria.
Austin Carlile, Vic Fuentes and Danny Worsnop all respectively reminisced on their individual relationships with the Suicide Silence frontman and the influence he had on them and the rest of the community. Carlile even claimed that Lucker was the only reason he had a rose tattooed on the side of his neck.
