According to the Orange County corner's office, the accident took place in Huntington Beach and Lucker was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. on Thursday.

"There's no easy way to say this," the band wrote in a statement posted 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 rose to prominence in 2007 with its debut album, "The Cleansing." In 2009, Revolver magazine named the group best new talent at its annual Golden Gods Awards and the band released another album last year.

Our thoughts go out to Lucker's loved ones.
