12 of 186: Mitch Lucker, lead singer for the metal band Suicide Silence, was pronounced dead on November 1, 2012, following a tragic motorcycle accident in Huntington Beach, Calif. He was 28-years-old.

'There's no easy way to say this. R.I.P. Mitchell Adam Lucker - We Love You Brother,' the band said in a statement.'There will be a candlelight vigil held for Mitch tonight at 8pm in Huntington Beach at Main St. and 12th. Open to all.'

Around 8:55 p.m. on October 31, Lucker lost control of his Harley Davidson and collided with a light pole, throwing him from his motorcycle. His Harley continued giong down the street and hit a pickup truck, but no one else was injured. The singer was transported to the hospital, but died shortly after 6 a.m. the following day.

The evening of the accident, Lucker posted a photo of himself wearing Dias De Los Muertos makeup on his Instagram account and wrote, 'The dead are living...'
