Suicide Silence Release 30-Minute Mitch Lucker Documentary
Suicide Silence have just released a 30-minute documentary on the life of late vocalist Mitch Lucker. Posted on Christmas Day, the short film shines a light on one of deathcore's most beloved vocalists, featuring early footage of the musician along with interviews with his bandmates and family.
On Halloween night 2012, Lucker drove his motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol. After crashing his bike, the vocalist died from injuries sustained the next morning. It took Suicide Silence almost an entire year to regroup and find a new vocalist, All Shall Perish's Eddie Hermida. Along with Hermida, Suicide Silence began recording a new album, but Lucker has not in any way been forgotten.
Along with the message, "Rest in Power. Legends Never Die," Suicide Silence shared the full documentary on their YouTube channel. "Mitchell was born on Oct. 20, 1984," says Mitch's mother, Denise Haddad. "He came out literally screaming and it ended up being his legacy." Lucker's father, Kip, also tells the story of how Mitch became interested in music, explaining the singer's journey to find the right instrument for him.
Lucker's mother continues, "Mitchell was given that talent and that gift [of connecting with people through music] and even though he's not here today, those gifts are gonna continue to be shared because those young teens are going to tell their own children. That's how the legacy is gonna be able to be passed on."
The Mitch Lucker documentary above will be packaged with the forthcoming release, 'Suicide Silence - Ending Is the Beginning: The Mitch Lucker Memorial Show,' which comes out on DVD on Feb. 18. It also features the star-studded memorial concert that took place in December 2012. Check out the setlist below.
