Roadie For A Day? Gotta Pay Suicide Silence $150

For a one time fee of $150 you can:

1. Work alongside the crew — who presumably brings tons of gear into the venue and sets up the stage for the band every day on tour.
2. Stand side-stage during Suicide Silence’s show — for optimal sound quality.
3. An exclusive Suicrew t-shirt that says “get the fuck out of my way” on the back of it.
4. A laminated piece of paper that shows everyone you were a roadie for a day.
5. Food with the crew — meaning you get a lunch break while working for the band, as recommended by the US Department of Labor.
6. You get to “mingle with the band” during soundcheck.
