This is going to be a huge step in the right direction for us."

The follow up to last years highly successful “Exhume to Consume” tour will feature SUICIDE SILENCE, SAMAEL, ARSIS and PSYCROPTIC plus a few special guests on select dates. Vocalist/bassist and all around optimistic person Jeff Walker commented:
"Well, I'm pleased to announce that CARCASS is gonna settle it's unresolved scores in the U.S.! There was some slight whimpers of discontent that we didn't hit some cities such as Chicago and Denver last time round - places that were always hot spots of enthusiasm for us. So we're coming back in March to finish off our unsettled business! We seemed to have had a profound influence on your economy and gas prices have gotten cheaper haha! That's doesn't mean we’re not gonna come through and provide some value for your buck with some old (and new) school friends and comrades such as SUFFOCATION, SAMAEL, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, SUICIDE SILENCE etc. - check out locally as for who is on the bill where! And hey, I couldn't think of anywhere better to be on my 40th birthday than the Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico! We promise this will be the last time we darken your shores (I said that with my fingers crossed behind my back)!"

A variety of city and county officials have urged area residents to avoid long-term exposure to the outdoors and limit outdoor recreational activities."
"We sincerely regret this unavoidable cancellation and apologize to fans for any disappointment caused," says tour co-founder John Reese.

The follow-up to 2006’s An Envy of Innocence, Exist will tentatively see a release late this summer. More...
Metal Injection has just posted an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of SUICIDE SILENCE's new video 'Bludgeoned To Death'.
During the segment, the band is also interviewed discussing a wide variety of topics including the band's popularity on MySpace, debuting on the Billboard charts, dealing with poor reviews in magazines and drinking with UNEARTH and DARKEST HOUR.
The interview/video can be viewed at this location.
One of the extreme metal genre’s most talked about new bands, SUICIDE SILENCE, will kick off a massive co-headlining North American trek with NILE early next month. The month-long tour, which starts on March 8th, also features THE FACELESS and WARBRINGER in the support slots. This will lead Suicide Silence into a run on the summer’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour alongside SLIPKNOT, DISTURBED and MACHINE HEAD, among a slew of others. Be sure to visit www.myspace.com/suicidesilence to view their complete touring schedule.
Mitch Lucker (vocals) states: “We’ve hardly had a chance to breathe since The Cleansing was released this past September. Our last minute addition to the Behemoth tour in Europe this month was amazing and we’re equally enthused about the Nile U.S. tour right around the corner. At the same time, we’ve just launched a 2nd music video from the record; this one for the track, ‘Bludgeoned to Death.’ After MTV banned the first video, we’ve decided to give it another go without really sacrificing any creativity or intensity. Hopefully, we’ll get lucky and people will actually air this one somewhere. Either way, this onslaught of touring never seems to end and we’re looking forward to every bit of it leading into this summer’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour. Come out to a show and hangout!”
NILE have been forced to cancel their upcoming February 20th show in Santiago, Chile. They have issued the following statement:
"The promoter has, at the last minute, refused to pay the band as agreed. The band is VERY disappointed, and if there was ANY way to still put on the show, I assure you they would do it! It's just not possible for them to fly the whole band and their gear to and from Chile, play the show and handle all living expenses out of their personal bank accounts. We hope the opportunity comes again for Nile to play in Chile, as they were very excited about this show. Please understand that if there was any way for Nile to still do this show they would do it in a heartbeat. We all sincerely apologize to the fans who have patiently waited for Nile to come to their country." More...

Century Media Records Germany reports:
SUICIDE SILENCE has just secured the direct support slot on the upcoming BEHEMOTH tour in February before they will come back with PARKWAY DRIVE and BURY YOUR DEAD in April/May.
Those diverse packages already show that Suicide Silence adheres to no preconceived notions and refuses to be pigeonholed into any specific genre. Their music clearly represents their many influences, incorporating a savage mix of death metal, grindcore, black metal, hardcore and doom elements into each track. The songs are dynamic and crushing, shifting effortlessly from insane grind chaos into surgically precise, disorienting time signatures topped off with snail-paced grooves and destructive breakdowns. Check out songs from The Cleansing at: http://www.myspace.com/suicidesilence
Suicide Silence’s album The Cleansing will finally hit Europe on February 18th and the UK on March 31st. It will come with the exclusive European bonus track 'A Dead Current' as well as a CD enhancement offering 6 live clips from US and UK.
Upon the US release of the album Suicide Silence made a huge statement to the metal world by entering the US Billboard Top 200 chart at #94, which marks the highest debut ever for a new Century Media artist.
