One of the most prolific albums in the history of the deathcore genre is easily Suicide Silence's debut offering, "The Cleansing," originally released on September 18th, 2007 and debuting at #94 on the Billboard Top 200 charts.

Suicide Silence will officially commemorate the album's special 10 year anniversary release by embarking on a lengthy North America tour performing the album is its entirety every night. This touring package will feature Upon A Burning Body, Winds of Plague (on select dates), Slaughter To Prevail, and Prison. It kicks off November 7th in Oakland and wraps up December 17th in Hollywood, CA.

Mark Heylmun (guitars) states: "10 fucking years!! 'The Cleansing' was a record we wrote when most of us were in our early 20’s. I was in my teens still! My has the time flown by. All we knew back then was we wanted to offend ppl and piss in the face of the mainstream (Dying Fetus pun intended). We've wanted to do a commemorative tour for this record for years now and the time has come. 'The Cleansing' broke us into the metal world and the record came from a very special place, a fresh place, a place that words fail when I try to describe it, and without it...well we wouldn't be here attempting to describe it.

"Mitch had a vision for this record, he wanted to set a standard for our scene and in my eyes he created much much more. Since his passing, Eddie has payed homage to Mitch's vox on this record every night. It’s something very close to our hearts to have Eddie singing these songs with us. Mitch and Eddie inspired each other, exchanged vocal tips, and both have the passion for the most brutal sounds you can humanly make and it's going to be an amazing show for us and for you. Emotions will be high, maybe we will be high too, you don't want to miss this. Let's fucking party! Come celebrate with us cuz this will only happen once!"
