"There's no easy way to say this," the band said in a Thursday posting on its 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 released three Century Media albums: "The Cleansing," ''No Time to Bleed" and "The Black Crown."

Century Media's website describes Suicide Silence as the "modern death metal band for a new generation."

Lucker said on the record company website that the band is carving out an abrasive niche of its own.

"No imitators, no second guessing. I want it to be known," Lucker said. "It's the same thing as when you pop in a Korn, Deftones, or Slipknot CD: you know that stamp is there."
