SUICIDE SILENCE has dominated the metal world since arriving on the scene in 2005. Almost immediately, the Riverside natives caught fire and became a five-piece force of destruction, bludgeoning fans across the world with the strength of their two full-length records. It's now 2011 and the band is gearing up for its biggest campaign yet. SUICIDE SILENCE will soon be entering the studio with heavyweight producer Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Hatebreed) to create their most substantial piece of work to date. This summer, the yet-to-be-titled record aims to redefine heavy and further the band's dominating force within the extreme metal community. Following a long list of achievements, including a Revolver Golden God Award for ‘Best New Talent’, the band catapulted to the top of the metal world to become one of the most influential and respected young bands around. SUICIDE SILENCE has spread their infectious brand of metal across the globe, taking part in tours such as Vans Warped Tour, the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, Music as a Weapon IV and even the massive Download Festival in the UK.
This year will see some of their best touring yet; having already confirmed Graspop, Vainstream, and other major European festivals, the band is now excited to reveal their participation in the 2011 edition of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. Clearly reminded of the sheer aggression and captivating performance of the band’s 2008 appearance, the Mayhem Festival has invited SUICIDE SILENCE to return and unleash their punishing brand of metal to the masses. This special 2011 performance will feature a more elaborate stage show alongside an array of new music never previously performed and will certainly be the premier opportunity to witness the band lay waste across the country. SUICIDE SILENCE has already landed the cover of Revolver, been named one of the ‘100 Bands You Need To Know’ by Alternative Press and shifted nearly 200,000 records in a time where critics claim the music industry is dead. After two highly acclaimed studio albums and countless laps around the globe alongside the likes of Slipknot, Slayer, Megadeth, As I Lay Dying, Mudvayne and more, SUICIDE SILENCE has proven itself to be a truly dominant force in modern metal. Now, the juggernaut returns with its third-full length, which looks to push the extreme metal genre even further into the scope of music fans everywhere. Look for SUICIDE SILENCE to be in your face throughout the year regardless of where you live or what genre you pledge your allegiance to.
SUICIDE SILENCE will find a way into your world in 2011 so be prepared to bang your head! The group will made their triumphant return to the U.S. in early July as part of the summer's most anticipated tour, "Rockstar Energy Mayhem," alongside Slipknot, Disturbed and Machine Head, among a slew of others.
