Music: Suicide Silence

Suicide Silence are an American Deathcore band that formed in 2002.

The band originally formed with two vocalists, but only Mitch Lucker stayed due to the other getting fired. After a few demo releases, they got to record their Self titled EP, and afterwards, they decided that it would stick as a main band and not originally as a side project. After some lineup changes, they signed onto Century Media to record their debut album, hitting #94 at the Billboards 200. Due to this success, they took part in the Mayhem Festival 2008.

Afterwards, they got to working on No Time To Bleed, which had been worked on before MF 2008, and revealed a few songs that were played live at the Music as a Weapon fest. When it was finally released, it landed on #32 on the Billboard 200.

2011 saw the release of The Black Crown. They signed onto Nuclear Blast Afterwards; however, they've yet to release anything under that label.

Disaster struck in November 1, 2012, when Lucker died from a motorcycle accident, effectively putting the band on hiatus due to Lucker being the main driving force of the band, and to help support his 5 year old daughter. The latest show was on the supposed doomsday of 2012.

On October 2, 2013, it was announced through a video on their Facebook page that they would be continuing the band with Eddie Hermida (ex-vocalist of All Shall Perish) on vocal duties.

2014 is looking like a return to form of the band. Currently, the band is working on their fourth studio album titled You Can't Stop Me (named after a song Mitch wrote before his passing) which is to be released during the summer of 2014. A single titled Cease to Exist came out in May 2014 to positive reception. Live shows started happening again, starting with Soundwave in Australia, several appearances in Asia, and finally making their first American show with Eddie at the Golden God Awards 2014. Despite the untimely death of Mitch Lucker, it seems that the band is back on their feet.
