Make Them Suffer Drop New Video and Announce New Album


Make Then Suffer have a new lineup featuring a new member after their latest clean vocalist and keyboardist was asked to leave due to sexual assault allegations. They also dropped a new video for their latest track.

The new track is called “Doomswitch,” which is “a term used to describe a theoretical mechanism where an online poker site inflicts bad luck on a player,” according to their press release. It’s also a cool name for a song. Peep the video below.

Hailing from Perth, this is a big moment for the metalcore band, as clean vocalist and keyboardist Alex Reade has officially joined the team. Their former clean vocalist and keyboardist, Booka Nile, was asked to leave the band in February of this year following allegations that she sexually assaulted a man she slept with.

Of the new song, the band say,

“Sean (Harmanis, vocals) related to this term and, at the time, it felt as if a ‘Doomswitch’ had flicked on his life, so we used the concept as the main inspiration for the song. We’ve adopted a new element into our sound along with the inclusion of a new member: Alex. This song marks a new chapter and the next step forward for the band and the sonic shift in ‘Doomswitch’ really drives that home.”

The video was directed by Colin Jeffs and filmed at The Paint Factory in Brisbane.
