It’s been more than three years since Suicide Silence lost their singer Mitch Lucker in a motorcycle accident. Since that day, the band has done a lot to keep the vocalist’s memory alive from holding a charity show to help raise funds for the late singer’s daughter to giving back to a charity to help combat suicide in America. Last December, the band raised nearly $17,000 at a benefit show for Mental Health America of Los Angeles.
Now, in exchange for the band’s generosity, the nonprofit organization has named their donated clothing department “The Mitch Lucker Clothing Closet.” “We are honored to have been the beneficiary of a charity concert held by the band Suicide Silence,” begins the statement from the nonprofit organization on Facebook. “Their donation is helping us to build our homeless healthcare center where people living on the streets with mental illness can come and get their needs met. This center will help people get connected to the services that they need. The band has chosen to name our clothing closet in honor of their departed lead singer, Mitch Lucker, who helped begin the legacy of giving that led them to us. We could not be more grateful. Thank you to Suicide Silence and to your compassionate fans!”
Suicide Silence took to Facebook to comment about the honor. “As a result of December’s benefit show, we’re happy to announce that Mental Health America of Los Angeles will be officially naming their donated clothing department ‘The Mitch Lucker Clothing Closet.’ We’d like to thank MHALA & all of our fans for helping to make this great honor possible. Let’s all continue to live positively & make 2016 an incredible year.”
Suicide Silence released their fourth studio album, You Can’t Stop Me, which featured the official debut of their new vocalist, Eddie Hermida, in 2014. In the fall of 2015, they released their Sacred Words EP and hit the road alongside Korn for their 20th anniversary tour.
