The name "Suicide" came from the notion that unless you stop yourself, there's no reason you can't achieve whatever you want in this life.
Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze, sex and theatrics into their own nu brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills heavy metal, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. "Rock fans havent gone anywhere, Suicide exclaims, they just need a reason to fall in love again.
Formed in 2010, Suicide played a few huge shows in Hollywood before garnering the attention of a couple labels and the original manager of Linkin Park. By early 2012, Suicide signed a record deal and started extensively touring by the summer of 2012. Over the next five years, the band went on 16 tours and put out 3 releases including an EP entitled, Put Our Trust in Suicide (Nov 2012), the self titled Davey Suicide LP (March 2013) and the World Wide Suicide LP (September 2014).
Along the way, Suicide gained notable press from Kerrang Magazine as one of the Top 50 Rockstars in the World, Alternative Press 100 Bands You Need to Know, Revolver Magazines Ones to Watch, and numerous features in Big Cheese, Outburn, Substream, Scuzz TV & Blank TV.
In in the spring of 2015, Suicide and former record label locked horns in a year and a half long litigation over rights of Suicides albums and numerous contractual breaches. In August of 2016, Suicide released a tell-all video depicting the details of what the band and he had gone through with the label. The video turned into a media circus amassing over 1.3 million views, and reaching over 3 million people in a matter of days. Shortly after the video went viral, the lawsuit ended up getting settled. The video was then removed after the settlement.
In late August of 2016, Suicide released the empowering single, Rise Above which is the first taste of their upcoming 3rd studio album entitled, Made From Fire.
On September 16, 2016, the Davey Suicide catalogue will be re-released on Itunes, and all digital outlets by the band. Made From Fire, the 3rd studio LP, is rumored for a 2017 release. Suicide exclaims, All of this adversity has brought out the best in us. It could have ended us, but instead, weve created our most exciting collection of material to date.
The name "SUICIDE" is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there is no ceiling for what we are capable of.
Davey Suicide is ready to set the world ablaze. On his self-titled debut album, the Los Angeles insurgent injects gutter grit back into rock 'n' roll. It's been far too long since a rebel raged through town with distortion blaring, middle fingers in the air, girls dropping their panties, and flames everywhere. Flanked by bandmates Frankie Sil [Bass], Ben Graves [Drums], Needlz [Keyboards], and Eric Griffin [Guitar], he distills heavy metal, industrial, and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. Whether or not you're prepared, Suicide has arrived.
As a kid, he always knew the "safe" life wasn't for him. In order to tune out the fights of a broken home and the pressures of church, he'd crank Guns N' Roses, Pantera, and Metallica on his stereo and play guitar as loud as his small Peavey amp would allow.
Music kept him away from drugs and other trouble, and his three patron saints became Axl Rose, Marilyn Manson, and Eminem. Beyond adorning his arm within a tattoo tapestry, he learned one important thing from these icons that eventually inspired him to move from the East Coast to Hollywood.
"It's important to pave your own road," declares Suicide. "I hit a ceiling. I had some opportunities that slipped away, and I woke up one day with the idea of 'Davey Suicide'. I needed a constant reminder that we're all in the driver's seat. If I give up on myself, shit's not going to go the way I want it to. I'd rather live by my rules than feel like I'm stuck inside a box. It's about believing in yourself. Put your trust in Suicide."
You can begin with the fourteen songs on the album. The first single "Generation Fuck Star" thrashes with intense industrialized guitar and an arena-ready hook. With a music video concept penned by Suicide himself, "Generation Fuck Star" is an unforgettable calling card both sonically and visually.
