Suicide Silence have officially announced July 15 as the release date of their new album "You Can't Stop Me," their first studio effort since the death of singer Mitch Lucker.
Produced by Steve Evetts (Sepultura, Dillinger Escape Plan), the album will drop via Nuclear Blast and feature new vocalist Hernan "Eddie" Hermida, formerly of All Shall Perish.
"The long and short of it is this," guitarist Mark Heylmun stated. "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," he continued.
"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 f--king 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 release concludes.
The band made their first US performance with Hermida yesterday (April 23) at Revolver Golden Gods Awards alongside Soulfly mainman Max Cavalera.
