Suicide Silence have confirmed that their fifth album will be self-titled, and it’ll arrive in February.
It’s their second release with frontman Eddie Hermida, following the death of Mitch Lucker in 2012. Hermida debuted on 2014’s You Can’t Stop Me.
The band confirmed the title via SiriusXM at the weekend.
Guitarist Mark Heylmun recently said: “The record’s going to be natural, raw and fucking pissed. It’s going to be exactly what music needs, which is some fucking heart. Some fucking blood. Some real fucking give-a-shit passion.
“It’s not going to be full of computer trickery. It’s not going to sound like all the ProTools ninjas and Logic ninjas.
“We recorded with tape on this record. There’s real music, it’s not samples. We went for a record that speaks for us and really exemplifies where we’re at as a band.
“It’s going to be something else for people to witness – like a car accident they can’t keep their eyes off.”
He added that the band refused to be distracted by “music industry bullshit” and the result was “Suicide Silence doing what Suicide Silence wants to do.”
The album has been produced by Ross Robinson, known for his work with Slipknot, Korn, Sepultura and many others. It’s to be released via Nuclear Blast. The band tour North America with Whitechapel, Carnifex and Oceano over the coming weeks, before a European run begins in November. Full dates below.
