On the 10th anniversary of his tragic passing, Suicide Silence have paid tribute to late frontman Mitch Lucker.

The iconic deathcore vocalist lost his life on November 1, 2012, following a motorcycle accident the night before on Halloween. Now, a decade on, the band remember “a loving father, brother and husband”, and thank their fans for “keeping Mitch and his legacy alive everyday by listening to the music that he left us”.

Read the tribute: “It’s been 10 years. Today we want to celebrate Mitch. He was a bigger than life guy. A loving father, brother & husband. Thank you all for keeping Mitch & his legacy alive everyday by listening to the music that he left us. We miss you brother.”

Speaking to Kerrang! about the loss of Mitch a couple of years ago, Vic Fuentes of Pierce The Veil remembered: “He had a lot of charm and he was a great frontman. He had a big ‘wingspan’ move that he used to do (stretches arms) that just looked so awesome and heavy. Everyone in our tight scene that did a lot of Warped Tours was pretty shocked and sad to hear about it.”

Meanwhile, Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes reflected: “We’d spent a lot of time [together] on Warped and at that time we were both quite troubled people. We bonded over the fact that we were like that, we were both abusing stuff that we shouldn’t be. But at the same time he was a proper sweetheart, a proper nice guy.”
