Suicide Silence Set July Release For New Album

Suicide Silence have decided to title their new album “You Can’t Stop Me” and will release it on July 15th in North America on Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The effort will mark the bands first album with frontman Eddie Hermida (ex-All Shall Perish) and was produced by Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

Band guitarist Mark Heylmun said of the outing:

“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.”
