SUICIDE SILENCE Tap ALL SHALL PERISH Singer To Fill Vacant Vocalist SlotFriday, 4th October 2013
California deathcore outfit SUICIDE SILENCE have officially announced the addition of ALL SHALL PERISH singer Hernan “Eddie” Hermida to the group’s ranks.
Comments SUICIDE SILENCE: “For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the ‘Spreading Disease Tour’, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006. [Late SUICIDE SILENCE singer] Mitch [Lucker] and Eddie remained longtime friends and we felt that if the band were to continue, it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an artist. We’ve chosen Eddie as our new frontman in association with this long-standing relationship and countless other attributes, from his quality of character to his dynamic vocal abilities that make him the absolute best fit for this band.
“We hope you all will embrace this decision with open arms understanding that this is what Mitch would have wanted. He would want his brothers to stick together and carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage, it will be in his honor and for his legacy.
“SUICIDE SILENCE will continue.”
An audio snippet of the SUICIDE SILENCE song “You Only Live Once” featuring Hermida can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
Lucker died November 1, 2012 after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach on Halloween night.
