Rockers Suicide Silence are set to play a special benefit show next month (Dec12) to raise funds for the daughter of their tragic frontman Mitch Lucker.
Lucker died at the University of California Irvine Medical Center on 1 November (12) due to injuries sustained during a motorcycle crash on Halloween (31Oct12).
He left behind his wife Jolie Carmadella and their five-year-old daughter Kenadee and now the group is staging a concert at the Fox Theater in Pomona on 21 December (12) to help put money towards her college education.
Guitarist Mark Heylmun announced the news at the California Metalfest on Saturday (24Nov12), telling the crowd, "We f**king lost our brother; I'm sure you all know that. We all miss him more than anything in the f**king world...
"This is the most difficult thing we've ever had to deal with; I really don't know where to start... Everybody's been asking what we're gonna do as a band. We're putting together a show...
"Obviously, Mitch is not gonna be there. We're gonna have a different singer every single song. We're gonna put the best show that we possibly can together... Hopefully everybody can make it out. It's gonna be really f**king special. And all the money that is going towards the show is going to Kenadee's educational fund. So it's going to a cause and Mitch would really appreciate it and we appreciate it. Thank you very much."
