Latest Suicide Silence News
Below is our complete Suicide Silence news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
SUICIDE SILENCE joined up with acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, THE RED CHORD) this past weekend to shoot a new video for the track "Bludgeoned To Death". The clip is set to capture the band’s unrelenting, frenetic stage energy and look for a special making of the video to be released online in the coming weeks.
SUICIDE SILENCE just kicked off the Hot Topic-sponsored "The Dawn of Destruction" tour, which is a massive headlining U.S. run that is not to be missed. Joining them on this trek are A LIFE ONCE LOST, WALLS OF JERICHO and THE AGONY SCENE. This massive North American assault features a devastating lineup from top to bottom and this fan-friendly, affordably-priced tour is easily going to be one of the most talked about packages going out this fall.
Mark Heylmun (guitars) states: "We just kicked off a headlining run with A LIFE ONCE LOST, WALLS OF JERICHO and THE AGONY SCENE, which we've been excited about for awhile. We're stoked these awesome bands are out with us and hope all the freaks, geeks and headbangers will come party with us. We’re gonna be adding some new shit to the set as well, so come check it out! We also just shot a video for 'Bludgeoned To Death' in Brooklyn with David Brodsky, which was grueling but cool. Since we can't get gnarly in our videos without people saying its too violent or gruesome Dave managed to tame it down a bit while still getting the best out of us. We rocked as hard as we could for a good portion of that day in a dusty basement and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Keep it real and hopefully we will see you soon."
HeavyMetalSource.com conducted an interview with SUICIDE SILENCE vocalist Mitch Lucker and guitarist Mark Heylmun on October 28, 2007 in New Haven, Connecticut. Watch the nine-minute clip below.
SUICIDE SILENCE made a huge statement to the metal world in September as its highly acclaimed debut offering, "The Cleansing", entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #94 (with first-week sales of 7,100), which marks the highest debut ever for a new Century Media artist. More...
Both ARSIS and SUICIDE SILENCE shot videos this past weekend with David Brodsky (The Red Chord, Gwar, Through The Eyes of the Dead) and his crew from MyGoodEye. ARSIS shot a video for the song “We Are the Nightmare,” which is the title track off their forthcoming Nuclear Blast debut, set to be released in early 2008. SUICIDE SILENCE shot for “Bludgeoned to Death,” off the album “The Cleansing,” now out on Century Media.

Massachusetts metal heavyweights Unearth have just announced that they will be filming their show at the Glasshouse in Pomona, CA for an upcoming DVD. This tour marks the band's first US tour since their run of dates with Dimmu Borgir back in April/May of 2007. Joining Unearth on tour will be Darkest Hour, August Burns Red, and Suicide Silence. This monstrous tour will hit the road on September 27th for a four-week North American tour with stops in Canada. The dates are in support of the Unearth's latest album, III: In The Eyes Of Fire (recorded with Terry Date, Soundgarden, White Zombie, Pantera, Deftones) which was released August 8th 2006.
Here's what vocalist Trevor Phipps has to say: "We figured it was about time we shot a real DVD and what better place than the intimate Glasshouse? Ever since we first played there in 2002 we have loved the crowds and venue in every repeat visit. We couldn't be more stoked to return and get it on tape this time around. A high energy show and good times will be had by all on October 9th.
The live show will only be part of the DVD as we aim to make it a double disc with behind the scenes footage of us on tour, the band and crew backstage, hanging with the fans, rare studio footage, band, crew and special guest interviews, more live footage and pictures from our travels around the world and all of our videos. The DVD set will be a complete retrospective from our beginnings in the basement practice space in Winthrop, Massachusetts all the way up to present day as well as a look at what is in store for us as we approach a full decade of being Unearth."
If any of you have pictures or video you think will be a worthy addition to the DVD, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Suicide Silence has set “The Cleansing” as the title to their much-anticipated debut album, which is set for a Sept. 18th release. A devastating new track, "Unanswered," has just been posted on the band's official Myspace Page along with the disc's striking cover art and official track listing.
This scorching new effort was recorded with acclaimed producer John Travis (Static-X), while the renowned Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted) handled mixing duties.
The artwork for “The Cleansing” was handled by the legendary Dave McKean (Mirrormask, Sandman comics) and Mitch Lucker (vocals) states: “From the very beginning, we wanted artwork that would separate ourselves from other bands and add some value to the purchase so fans would be less prone to simply download the record. Dave went above and beyond helping us achieve that as he created an entire layout that exceeded our expectations and further enhanced the album artistically.”

You belong with us and together we will conquer all because as you are our remedy, we are yours, we help each other. Music is the key for survival.
