Make Them Suffer played their song "Contraband" for the first time ever on March 22 at The Forum in Melbourne, Australia. The song featured Spiritbox vocalist Courtney LaPlante, who completed the band's lineup for the performance. Because if you're gonna do a song featuring a guest for the first time, you might as well have that guest join on stage, right?
Make Them Suffer is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut Neverbloom album a little late this year with a brand new, completely remastered version streaming in full below.
"Neverbloom holds a profound significance in our hearts as it embodies the very essence and cornerstone of our musical identity," said vocalist Sean Harmanis. "Despite our departure from its sound over the years, the album remains indispensable in our catalogue, as it continues to this day to inspire our artistic pursuits. We couldn't be more excited to perform some of these songs for the first and last time live and we can't wait to see you all there."
In addition to the remastered album, Make Them Suffer will hit the road in their home country of Australia with Fit For An Autopsy and Ocean Sleeper for an anniversary tour. Get the dates below.

As for Spiritbox, they recently dropped off a tour with Falling In Reverse. Spiritbox only offered the following comment regarding their departure: "We have withdrawn from the 6 shows we were scheduled to perform on the Popular Monstour." The following dates have been affected, as they no longer feature Spiritbox.
Spiritbox dropping off the tour was rumored last week after the band removed all mention of the dates from their social media. The band caught quite a bit of backlash online upon the announcement of the tour, mostly due to the many allegations against Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radkey including violent incidents and homophobia.
