SUICIDE SILENCE's CHRIS GARZA Names The Worst Thing About Being In A Band

Enjoying music just isn't the same.

Chris Garza

Making music requires a critical ear. Whether it be how it's written or how it's produced, or even the little details that make a song something special, analysis of music is an important part of creating it. And that kinda sucks when you're just trying to enjoy a new band or song.

In an episode of his Garza Podcast, Suicide Silence guitarist Chris Garza said not being able to turn off that critical part of his brain is the worst part of being in a band.

"The worst thing about being in a band and playing music is you you lose your innocent ear. It's the worst thing," said Garza. "No matter what band you see, [or hear a] new song or record, you're listening to, you're just going to this analyzing mode every time. It sucks man. You can't just go to a show and be like be, 'whoa' and enjoy it. I'll go see comedians and there's no filter. I'm just an idiot, truly appreciating."

Garza also touched on the idea of bands making music together for the first time, and why you're never going to get a demo-quality record from a band you love ever again. Long story short, there's just too much experience and aging involved.

"There's something special about doing something for the first time. For bands, it's like recording a new record. It's kind of why the records sound that way when they're so early on their career. There's something about not knowing what the fuck you're doing and just doing it. You can only do that once or twice."

Suicide Silence will release their new record Remember… You Must Die for March 10. Pre-orders are available here. They'll also hit the road with Dying Fetus, Born Of Osiris, Aborted, Sanguisugabogg, Crown Magnetar, and Slay Squad.
