Suicide Silence’s Alex Lopez Opens Up On Mitch Lucker’s Passing To We Came As Romans Drummer


Another episode of Fuse‘s ‘Metalhead To Head‘ series has been released and it features Suicide Silence drummer Alex Lopez paired with We Came As Romans drummer Eric Choi. During the course of the chat and jams Lopez offered the following on continuing on without their late frontman Mitch Lucker.

“The whole Mitch situation… You know, it’s like bittersweet with him. All he ever talked about was living your life full, don’t ever really look back, live it hard, be positive—like be willing to die for what you say. And Mitch is the only person I knew that was like that.

Whenever anyone asks me about it I always like to talk about it ’cause there’s a lot of people who don’t have closure, ya know? I meet kids who are just mad at us for carrying on and carrying the torch and all that.

But it’s not about that, it’s about Suicide Silence… it’s a band, ya know. We’re a big unit and we decided to move on. Not saying—I don’t speak for dead people, I’m not speaking for Mitch—but I know that Mitch would say that like if we don’t keep going then no one’s ever going to know.

There’s people that have never even seen us. There’s kids that never even heard of Suicide Silence until everything happened. We’re keeping not only him alive and his history—cause he’s not the first singer to pass, ya know—it’s just he was just one true dude and everyone’s going to miss him.”

Suicide Silence will release their new album “You Can’t Stop Me” on July 15th. It will mark their first record with Eddie Hermida (ex-All Shall Perish,) who replaces Lucker.
