My Private Hell Announces "Suicide" As Title Of New EP

With the June 9th, 2009 release of the “Suicide EP,” My Private Hell’s second EP in a 4 year span, fans will experience the band's latest release since 2005’s EP "Weight Of the World." Now in their fifth year together, Gian Erguiza, Blue Palacol and Eric Cuarez, My Private Hell has taken their music to new places while retaining the core values they’ve always embodied and embraced since their inception.

“Suicide” picks up from the tighter, brash sound of My Private Hell’s previous effort, which subsequently shaped the sound and attitude of the band. The “Suicide EP” serves as a new outlook for My Private Hell with a renewed sense of purpose, as depicted by the colorful, true-to-life story of lead track “Suicide” and the melancholic lullaby of “Temptation.” In a nutshell, says Blue, “It’s a new band. We know where we come from and where we’ve been and what we’ve done. We’re headed in a new direction now. Not on purpose. It’s just where we’re headed and that’s it.”

Gian’s latest batch of songs, with Blue and Eric co-writing, were penned over the past few years and recorded sporadically during that period. With little help from friends here and there on the producing end and recording help from the Soundmaster Recording Engineer School, these and other elements helped fine-tuned the recordings.

My Private Hell spent 2008 honing their skills and making adjustments. Rolling out new songs - many of them based on life experiences from the band - at their dynamic live shows, audiences eagerly agreed that round two has just begun. “We played ‘Suicide’ and ‘Temptation,’ which is on the new EP, for the first time in Los Angeles,” Gian says. “We got a huge response after ‘Temptation,’ which is new in direction for us, and ‘Suicide’ got good movement, horns and banging heads. Moments like that are surreal as to how people can immediately make a connection without even hearing the song beforehand. Music is about making that connection and connect we will.”

Shortly after the EP release, My Private Hell will be pursuing all different types of opportunities for exposure and awareness of their music, for which Gian will be joined by Blue and Eric, the current members. All are looking forward to bringing the new songs onstage and in action.

The full track listing for "Suicide" is:
