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.
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.

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.
A LIFE ONCE LOST have lined up a warm up show before their upcoming U.S. tour with SUICIDE SILENCE. The show will take place in New York City on October 29th at the Lit Lounge and feature performances from ALOL, BLOODY PANDA, and CASKET ARCHITECTS.
The band have also been added to the following dates of the AMON AMARTH, DECAPITATED, and SONIC SYNDICATE tour:
November 29 - Charlotte, NC @ Tremont Music Hall
November 30 - Springfield, VA @ Jaxx
Unearth has posted the following short tour update on their MySpace page:

"It feels good to be back in the smaller venues with the people right up at the stage partying with us. These shows could not be going any better."

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 email@example.com.
