Suicide Silence to Enter the Studio Next Week
Now that Suicide Silence have whisked Eddie Hermida away from All Shall Perish to fill the vacancy left by last year’s tragic death of vocalist Mitch Lucker, it’s time for the band to get down to business: namely, making a new album. Which is happening! Like, next week!!!
A press release tells us the band will hit the studio “the week of November 4” (again, next week, duh) with producer Steve Evetts, who not only produced the band’s last effort, The Black Crown, but is also The Dillinger Escape Plan’s go-to dude, and has also done albums with Every Time I Die, Sepultura, Warbringer, and a ton of other bands.
Sez mightily-bearded guitarist Mark Heylmun in the press release:
“This record will be the grittiest, most meaningful piece of work we’ve ever stood behind. We cannot wait for everyone to hear it. Steve Evetts is someone we’ve worked closely with for a long while, not only on The Black Crown, but also on some instrumental demos just prior to the tragedy last Fall. Here we are a year later prepping to record the nastiest, heaviest, most disgusting work we’ve ever done. Expect the unexpected. This is for Mitch.”
The band obviously has a lot riding on this release — Hermida could be the Brian Johnson to their Bon Scott, or he could be the Gary Cherone to their David Lee Roth/Sammy Hagar. Either way, I’m sure he’ll just be grateful not to be their Dan Nelson.
Suicide Silence’s new album should be out next year on Nuclear Blast, and, I assume, will not feature way more lyrics about politics n’ the proletariat n’ stuff than previous SS releases. While you wait to hear it, enjoy this photo of the band being super-casual and laughing at some joke that, tragically, none of us will ever get to hear:
