The members of Suicide Silence, the extreme metal band from California that was awarded the Revolver magazine "Best New Talent" award in 2009, is in mourning today, as their lead vocalist, Mitch Lucker, was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident on Thursday at the age of 28.

Lucker was reportedly driving his 2013 Harley-Davidson on Main Street in Huntington Beach, Calif., when he lost control of the vehicle, hit a light pole and was thrown from the bike, reports the Los Angeles Times. Lucker was rushed to the hospital and declared dead around 6 a.m. at UC Irvine Medical Center.

"There's no easy way to say this," the band, also consisting of guitarists Chris Garza and Mark Heylmun, drummer Alex Lopez and bassist Dan Kenny, posted in a statement on the Suicide Silence Facebook page. "Mitch passed away earlier this morning from injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. This is completely devastating to all of us and we offer our deepest condolences to his family. He will be forever in our hearts."

Suicide Silence has put out three albums: The Cleansing in 2007, No Time to Bleed in 2009 and The Black Crown in 2011. Lucker once described the last as a record that "just attacks, attacks, attacks …. It's simply unrelenting."
