MITCH LUCKER: 'I'd Rather Die Riding 95 Than Live A Life Full Of Nothing But Filthy Lies'

SUICIDE SILENCE frontman Mitch Lucker, who died this morning (Thursday, November 1) after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash, was an avid rider who made no bones about the fact that he liked to ride fast and hard.

On October 14, Lucker tweeted a photo of himself on his bike with the caption, "Captured last night smashing down the 15 freeway at 2AM. LOL."

In an October 3 tweet, Lucker summed up his life philosophy when he wrote, "I'd rather die riding 95 than live a life full of nothing but filthy lies."

According to The Press-Enterprise, the Orange County coroner's office said Lucker was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. Thursday at UCI Medical Center in Orange County.

Lucker was hospitalized after a motorcycle accident shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The 28-year-old singer lived in Huntington Beach but grew up in Riverside, California.

Mitch is survived by his wife, Jolie; 5-year-old daughter, Kenadee; brothers Cliff and Kelton; and his mother, Denise.

In a 2009 interview with Noisecreep, Lucker admitted that being his daughter's primary caregiver presented a conundrum for him whenever he had to leave her for brief spurts to tour the country. "It's the hardest thing I deal with, but what I'm doing is the reason we have a roof over our heads and that I can take care of her," he said at the time. "I hate being gone, but my family couldn't survive without me going on tour. Tons of fathers out there don't want to wake up and go to work, but they have to, in order provide. I don't consider SUICIDE SILENCE work. I just tell her, 'Daddy is going to leave and go play music now!'"
