It’s been exactly a year since Mitch left us & we are incredibly grateful for the love & support that so many of you have shown. The Kenadee Education Fund has received donations from over 11,000 unique individuals whose names we have now listed on a tribute wall at Donations will remain active on that page & T-Shirts / Wristbands are still available for purchase (with all proceeds going to the fund) at Names will continue to be added to the tribute wall and updated accordingly.

Legends never die, nor do the memories.
R.I.P. Mitchell Adam Lucker.”

The band only just recently confirmed their plans to continue on. To that end they recruited now former All Shall Perish frontman Eddie Hermida and are set to enter the studio on November 04th to begin recording their new album for Nuclear Blast Entertainment with producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die).

Winds Of Plague vocalist Johnny Plague—whose band included a touching tribute to Lucker in new album “Resistance“—also commented on the anniversary of Lucker‘s passing, saying:

“Even after a year of Mitch passing away I still struggle coming to terms with it. I still expect to see him around and then it hits me. It’s an absolute shame that he is no longer with us…. I remember one time on tour we prank called Mitch pretending to be some random fan that got ahold of his number and was telling him how his lyric “where is your god” actually helped me become a Christian and thanking him for helping me find God. Instead of hanging up on us or being a asshole we were all shocked at the patience Mitch had and how kind he was to everyone. He was one of the good guys, I miss my friend.”
