Suicide Silence released their first three records – The Cleansing in 2007, No Time To Bleed in 2009, and The Black Crown in 2011 – on Century Media. Now over a decade later, they're going back to the label for new music due out this year.
"I can't believe how far we've all come since the band began 20 years ago," said guitarist Chris Garza. "Today we're back where it all started — writing music together in the same room where the first three albums were created. We're incredibly excited to be working with Century Media Records once again as we enter the next chapter of our career."
"Suicide Silence has long been an important band in heavy music, not only being the band that really put 'Deathcore' on the map but a band that has continued to redefine themselves and beat the odds at every turn," added Mike Gitter, Century Media's Vice President of A&R. "The new music I've heard from them has all the intensity and earmarks of their past while continuing to push into the proverbial red."
Garza stated back in October that Suicide Silence was recording two new songs with producer Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), and that the band was "very focused."
"We're all very focused. We've not been in the same room like this for the past 15 years. It's taken us a long time for us to get to where we are now. We're a band. We write music in the same room and we don't have a laptop in front of us. Throughout pandemics and tragedies, money disappearing, girlfriends, wives, we still go here and get in a same room and do music together as a band. I can say straight up, we're the only band in our genre that does that, and that's not a good thing either.
Suicide Silence and Carnifex will hit the road this Spring for their Chaos & Carnage Tour. The tour will also feature Lorna Shore, Upon A Burning Body, AngelMaker, and Distant.
