Suicide Silence Premiere “Thinking In Tongues” Music Video

Suicide Silence have premiered a new video for their new song “Thinking In Tongues.” This track serves as the band’s final recording with drummer Alex Lopez, who recently announced his departure from the group. The band commented:

“This song derives from the chaotic feeling of losing one’s mind. Feeling like you’re choking on every breath you take until you eventually break. Debilitating confusion sets in and your mind begins ‘Thinking in Tongues’; essentially processing thoughts that not even you yourself can understand. In a sense, this song evokes the ultimate sense of helplessness.”

Suicide Silence Part Ways With Drummer Alex Lopez

Suicide Silence have parted ways with drummer Alex Lopez. Ernie Iniguez will be filling in for their upcoming shows.

The band commented:

“Suicide Silence & our long-time drummer, Alex Lopez, have mutually agreed to part ways. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward & encourage you all to follow his future endeavors in both music & visual arts. Our good friend, Ernie Iniguez (who recorded drums on ‘Become The Hunter‘) will be drumming with us on the upcoming Chaos & Carnage tour and European festival run.

That all said, we’ll be premiering a new single next week (Alex‘s final studio performance with the band) called ‘Thinking In Tongues‘ that we’re very excited for you all to hear. It will be premiering on SiriusXM Liquid Metal on May 03rd with a full digital release & music video on May 04th.”

Lopez also issued a statement:

“So I’ll make this as short as possible. Suicide Silence and myself have parted ways. I’ll always love them and their families and everything we accomplished together during my time. I wish SS the best. With that said, I’m excited to continue making music and art, and plan to be involved with any projects I find fulfilling.

I’d be truly grateful if you continued to follow and support what I do next, it’s not over for me by a long shot. Love and thank you to all my fans, friends and supporters, the next chapter begins”

Suicide Silence Sign New Deal With Century Media Records

Suicide Silence have officially returned to Century Media Records. With this news, the band have also confirmed that they are currently writing material for their next album.

Guitarist Chris Garza said the following:

“I can’t believe how far we’ve all come since the band began 20 years ago. 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.”

Mike Gitter, Century Media‘s Vice President of A&R, added:

“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. 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.”

Philipp Schulte, Century Media Vice President and Global Head, also commented:

“It feels great to welcome Suicide Silence, undeniably the most influential Deathcore band ever, back to Century Media Records. Working with them again feels like reuniting what was never meant to be divided. We’re happy being the band’s supporting label home again. No pity for the cowards!”

Suicide Silence Miss Two Shows Due To Positive COVID-19 Case Within Their Touring Party

Suicide Silence were forced to pull out of two shows on their tour with Jinjer and All Hail The Yeti due to a positive COVID-19 case within their touring party. The band commented:

“There has unfortunately been a positive test within our touring party & out of an abundance of caution, we’ll be missing tonight’s show in Philly & apologize for missing Brooklyn last night. We’ll make it back to you soon! For any shows beyond that, we’ll provide an update leading into the weekend. Stay safe out there everyone!”

Suicide Silence Plan To Release Two New Singles In Early 2022

During a recent interview with KCAL 96.7’s Radioactive Mike Z, Suicide Silence’s Chris Garza revealed that the band are working on two new singles. The tracks are expected to be released early next year.

Garza said the following:

“We’re doing two singles just about now, but it’s going to be a record eventually. [We’re working with] Taylor Young. He’s a producer out of the Valley. He’s done Nails and Twitching Tongues, very heavy stuff. He’s from Connecticut but moved down here when he was 16 and joined a band called Crematorium back in the day when we were playing together at a showcase.”

“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.”

“We’re all in a good headspace and I’m curious what the outcome is and I’m really stoked to hear it and I’m stoked for our fans to hear it. It’s Suicide Silence being Suicide Silence more than ever.”

After the horrible year we have all had, this is a brilliant light at the end of the tunnel for all of us! We have some new songs to play, new team and a whole new outlook on the heavy metal world.
