On November 1, 2012, Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker's life was cut tragically short after sustaining injuries following a motorcycle accident in Huntington Beach, California. 

A decade on, his surviving bandmates took to social media to remember their friend. 

The post reads: "It’s been 10 years. Today we want to celebrate Mitch. He was a bigger than life guy. A loving father, brother and husband. Thank you all for keeping Mitch and his legacy alive everyday by listening to the music that he left us. We miss you brother."

The band are currently working on their seventh studio album, which will be released through Century Media in 2023. 

The full-length effort, titled Remember… You Must Die, will be produced by Taylor Young and marks the debut of new drummer Ernie Iniguez, who replaces Alex Lopez. 

“Ernie recorded five songs the first day, which is mainly a set-up day normally,”  guitarist Mark Heylum revealed on bandmate Chris Garza's podcast earlier this year. “It was insane. We knocked out all the easy songs on day one. Day two, the other six, that was a hard day. But we still got done two hours early.”
