Now that Suicide Silence announced that former All Shall Perish vocalist Eddie Hermida has joined their ranks, the next step for the band is to record a new album. They have been writing for a while now and plan to enter the studio next week.
According to the band's Facebook page, where they've also posted the above picture:
We will begin recording our new album next week with Steve Evetts at the helm.
This record will be the grittiest, most meaningful piece of work we've ever stood behind. We cannot wait for everyone to hear it. Steve Evetts is someone we've worked closely with for a long while, not only on The Black Crown, but also on some instrumental demos just prior to the tragedy last Fall. Here we are a year later prepping to record the nastiest, heaviest, most disgusting work we've ever done. Expect the unexpected. This is for Mitch.
I'm really interested to hear how Hermida is going to fit into the band's style. I'm also interested to know if Hermida has written vocal parts for the music (which may or may not be fully written) or if it'll be a total "in-studio" affair. If there's ever been a time for Suicide Silence to put out a ridiculously good record, now would be that time since everyone is paying attention more than ever. I'm sure we'll be quite posted on the whole situation as it continues to unfold!

As we mentioned earlier, today is the one year anniversary of the passing of original vocalist Mitch Lucker. RIP Mitch.
