Suicide Silence Announce Tour with Two Good Bands and Emmure


suiside silence emmure tourFinding out about the next Suicide Silence North American headlining tour made me feel very much the way I imagine Jeff Hanneman felt when he went to the hospital with that near-fatal spider bite: he was probably relieved that doctors didn’t have to amputate his arm, but still totally heartbroken when he realized that the infection was bad enough to derail his career as a guitarist.

Likewise, I’m happy to see Suicide Silence touring with Fit For An Autopsy and Within the Ruins — they could call this The Deathcore That Doesn’t Suck Tour! — but I’m heartbroken to see Emmure on the bill. Even as a built-in bar break, Emmure’s presence is kinda ruinous — if I wanted to drink overpriced, watered down beers while horrible music played in the background, I’d go to TGIFriday’s.
