The Pit Report

Having had the privilege of being the Monster Energy Pit Reporter this past summer, there’s one thing I can honestly say about the Vans Warped Tour: it’s not a tour, but rather a music community unlike any other.
Today the Warped community mourns the loss of one of its own— Mitch Lucker, the lead singer for Suicide Silence.  Mitch and his band toured with the Vans Warped Tour in 2010 and were part of the No Room For Rockstars documentary.
My thoughts are with his family, bandmates, fans, and of course the Warped community.
Rest easy, Mitch.
