SUICIDE SILENCE: “You Can’t Stop Me” Album Due In JulyTuesday, 22nd April 2014
California deathcore troupe SUICIDE SILENCE will release You Can’t Stop Me, their first album to feature new vocalist Hernan “Eddie” Hermida (ex-ALL SHALL PERISH) and their first since the tragic loss of singer Mitch Lucker, on July 11 in Europe (except in the U.K., where it will arrive on July 14) and July 15 in North America via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
The album was produced and mixed by Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), who worked with the band not only on The Black Crown, but also on some instrumental demos for the new CD just prior to Lucker’s death in the fall of 2012.
“The long and short of it is this,” says guitarist Mark Heylmun. “Mitch left behind a set of lyrics with the title ‘You Can’t Stop Me’. This gave us chills, to say the least, and we knew we had the title and title track. This filled us with inspiration for writing sessions to empower us and empower you, the supporters of SUICIDE SILENCE.
“We as a band (and Steve Evetts) worked tirelessly on this record and I’m not gonna say we can’t wait for you to hear it. I’m gonna tell you that you have to hear it. You have to sit and listen from start to finish. I’m not gonna tell you this is our best record we’ve ever done. I’m gonna tell you this is the record we care more about than any record we’ve ever done. This is a record that we fought, bled, sweated, and fucking cried over.
“Go pick up a copy and turn this sucker up to eleven. We couldn’t be more excited.
“Thank you all for supporting SUICIDE SILENCE.”
Mitch Lucker died November 1, 2012 after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach on Halloween night.
