Mitch Lucker of the heavy metal band Suicide Silence died Thursday morning following a motorcycle accident on Halloween.

The remaining band members announced his death via Facebook.

"There's no easy way to say this," posted Suicide Silence. "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. R.I.P. Mitchell Adam Lucker- We Love You Brother."

The 28-year-old vocalist lost control of his motorcycle in Huntington Beach, Calif. on Wednesday night when he crashed into a light pole, according to the Newport Beach Patch.

Fortunately, no one else was injured during the accident, but police are wondering if alcohol played a role, according to The Riverside Press-Enterprise.

Lucker served as lead vocalist for the extreme metal band which has released three full-length studio albums.
