The past two years for Suicide Silence have been undeniably tough. After losing frontman and founding member Mitch Lucker to a fatal motorcycle accident, it’s easy to assume the group was on the brink of disbandment. However, the group’s strength and resilience has shown, picking up good friend All Shall Perish vocalist Eddie Hermida to carry on the legacy in Mitch’s memory.
It’s no secret that the group have been hard at work on a new album, but now some substantial movement is starting to take place as the group announces that the next record will be aptly titled You Can’t Stop Me, due for release July 15th through Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Explaining the meaning behind the title, guitarist Mark Heylmun said:
“The long and short of it is this, 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.”
The record was produced by Steve Evetts, frequent collaborator of Every Time I Die and The Dillinger Escape Plan. We’re eager to hear more, and we’ll pass along more information as it comes in.
