Make Them Suffer Premiere “Bones” Music Video

Make Them Suffer have premiered a new video for their new song “Bones.” This track is from the band’s new album “How To Survive A Funeral,” which was digitally released today (June 19). Physical copies will be released on July 10. Sean Harmanis said the following about “Bones”:

“‘Bones‘ is a song about sacrifice. It’s about the sacrifices I’ve made and the sacrifices we all make to pursue what we love. Writing the lyrics to this song raised the question of how much I’d be willing to give for this band. How much more could this pursuit take from me?”

Make Them Suffer’s New Album “How To Survive A Funeral” Will Now Be Digitally Released On Friday

Make Them Suffer were previously planning to delay the release of their new album “How To Survive A Funeral” until July 24, but now it looks like fans will get a chance to listen to it sooner than expected. The band have announced that the record will receive a digital release on June 19 and a physical release on July 10.

Make Them Suffer commented:

“Hi friends, We’re excited to announce that our new album ‘How To Survive A Funeral‘ will now be released THIS Friday, on June 19th.

This album is set to be our biggest and best yet, and we’re so excited to show you what we’ve worked so hard on. We wanted to give the record the release plan that we felt it deserves however due to a number of circumstances that are ultimately out of our control, we feel it’s best to get you the music as soon as possible.

While we’re happy the release been pushed forward to a sooner date once again, we realise how confusing the reshuffling of dates might be. In light of this we wanted to offer some transparency.

When Covid-19 hit, there were predictions of extensive manufacturing delays, forcing us to push back release to late July. Though as businesses began to reopen and restrictions loosened, product came in much sooner than initially expected. Though with shipping delays and less air travel, it would still take weeks to reach territories across the globe.

Due to a communication error between distributors and online retailers, some fans who pre-ordered the record have now received their physical copy early. We hope those that who have, are quietly enjoying our new record.

After working with retail partners and our distributors, we’ve pushed up the streaming and digital release date to June 19th, with the physical album available on July 10th. Everyone who pre-ordered a physical album through our webstores will receive a digital download on release day to use immediately. If you’d like to support us immediately, you can pre-order the album direct from our webstore, Bandcamp, iTunes or wherever you digitally purchase music.

We appreciate all your support so far on this album, every stream, every view, every purchase means the world to us. It’s been a tough few months for us all, please take care of yourselves and each other. As the world returns to normal, we look forward to seeing you back out on the road.
– Sean, Booka, Nick, Jaya & Jordan

Make Them Suffer Premiere New Song “Soul Decay”

Make Them Suffer have premiered a new song titled “Soul Decay” via Revolver. This track is from the band’s new album “How To Survive A Funeral,” which will be released on July 24. Sean Harmanis commented:

“‘Soul Decay‘ is about watching someone you know fall back into the same bad habits over and over, unaware that they themselves are the root of their own problems. I believe this is a message we all need to hear sometimes. Being able to accept responsibility for our own mistakes keeps us humble.”

Make Them Suffer Premiere New Song “Drown With Me”

Make Them Suffer have premiered a new song titled “Drown With Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “How To Survive A Funeral,” which will be released on June 5. The group commented:

“‘Drown With Me‘ is just a really fucked up love song. Love can be beautiful, but also dark and terrifying. The lyrics ‘Take my hand, don’t be scared, drown with me if you can’ beckons the listener to take the plunge into the unknown.”

Make Them Suffer Premiere “Erase Me” Music Video

Make Them Suffer have premiered a new video for their new song “Erase Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “How To Survive A Funeral,” which will be released on June 5. The group commented:

“‘Erase Me‘ is a song about pushing someone away and raises the question: Is it selfless or selfish to do? It’s unfortunate that some people are wired to always feel as if they’re never good enough. The sentiment of the lyrics ‘I’ve broken you enough so don’t hate me, erase me’ demonstrates the quality of selflessness. In retrospection, it’s that same selflessness that makes you ‘good enough.’”

“How To Survive A Funeral” Track Listing:

01. “Step One”
02. “Falling Ashes”
03. “Bones”
04. “Drown With Me”
05. “Erase Me”
06. “Soul Decay”
07. “Fake Your Own Death”
08. “How to Survive a Funeral”
09. “The Attendant”
10. “That’s Just Life”

Make Them Suffer Drop Off “Octane Accelerator Tour”

Make Them Suffer have dropped off SiriusXM’s “Octane Accelerator Tour.” The band were unable to make the trek due to immigration issues.

The group commented:

“It’s no secret that we’ve not yet made it to a show on the ‘Octane Accelerator Tour‘. Unfortunately we have had some serious setbacks with immigration, and were unable to secure the visas we needed in time for these shows with Ice Nine Kills, Fit For a King, Light the Torch & Awake at Last.

Touring internationally can be full of pitfalls for musicians, and immigration difficulties and UCIS delays for artists entering the United States are nothing new. We’ve tried everything in our power to fix this problem but unfortunately it’s completely out of our hands.

For our fans in the US, fear not, we will return in 2020, and we’ll be doing it with a new album under our belts & visas in hand. – Sean, Nick, Booké, Jaya & Jordan“

Make Them Suffer Keyboardist Booka Nile Calls Out Audience Member For Groping Her At Leipzig, Germany Show

During Make Them Suffer’s show at Naumanns in Leipzig, Germany earlier today (May 12), a crowd surfer ended up groping keyboardist/vocalist Booka Nile after making their way to the stage. Nile and the band both tweeted about the messed up situation:

Unfortunately, this isn’t the only time something like this has happened at metal shows this year. Otep previously called out members of the audience for sexually assaulting her during her February 24 show at the Futurum in Prague, Czech Republic:
