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.”
Bad Religion recently released a reimagined version of “Faith Alone” and now it looks like more new music is on the way. During a recent interview with Q104.3, Greg Graffin said that the group have “a string of other singles” that they are planning to release amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Graffin said the following while discussing the band’s postponed touring plans:
“Bad Religion still has a pretty grueling touring schedule. We’d sold a lot of tickets this year. And by March, obviously, it was clear that we were gonna be sidelined. Yet still, we reassured our fans that we were going to honor those tickets, and as soon as we’re through this crisis, we will.
A band is a lot more than just playing live, so we’ve tried to maintain our sanity and offer something to the fans. We just put out a single called ‘Faith Alone 2020’; you can find it on streaming services. And we’ve got a string of other singles that are gonna be coming out during this time. Because when we’re not on tour, we spend a lot of time in the studio. And now we all have music rooms and we all have Pro Tools studios at our houses. And we’re trying to fill in the time by doing creative, collaborative works like that.”
He also added:
“If you’re a creative band, you’re active right now. Because regardless of what a lot of bands will tell you, it’s not that easy to write music when you’re on tour. You have to partition your energy. And the idea of a band getting together after a concert, getting in a bus and just writing music, in our experience, that just doesn’t happen. Good writing is really a time of reflection, and it happens at times like these. So I think creative bands can be in a really good mode right now of producing material. As far as getting out there and playing, there’s only a certain number of venues, and everyone’s gonna be wanting to get out into those venues. So it remains to be seen how we’re going to partition the tours in the next year. But bands like Bad Religion, certainly, we have committed ourselves — we’ve already sold tickets, and I think those will be honored in the normal way.”
During an interview with United Rock Nations, Soilwork’s Björn “Speed” Strid revealed that the band are planning to release two new singles this year. He said the following:
“We’ll do a few shows, but this year is pretty much gonna be all about The Night Flight Orchestra, and then next year is gonna be about Soilwork. [I] try to divide, or separate, the album cycles a little bit, or touring cycles, if you will. But there will be some stuff — some shows and some singles that we’re gonna release as well, so people can look forward to that… We released a single in [October] last year. There’s gonna be two more this year.”
L7 will be releasing two new singles this fall, with the first one expected to surface on September 29. This will be the band’s first new music in 18 years. On another note, their new documentary “L7: Pretend We’re Dead” will be released on October 13.
