Suicide Silence Name New Singer
All Shall Perish’s Hernan “Eddie” Hermida is officially the new singer for Suicide Silece.
“For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the ‘Spreading Disease Tour’, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006,” says the band.
“[Late singer] Mitch [Lucker] and Eddie remained longtime friends and we felt that if the band were to continue, it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an artist,” says Suicide Silence.
“We’ve chosen Eddie as our new frontman in association with this long-standing relationship and countless other attributes, from his quality of character to his dynamic vocal abilities that make him the absolute best fit for this band.
“We hope you all will embrace this decision with open arms understanding that this is what Mitch would have wanted. He would want his brothers to stick together and carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage, it will be in his honor and for his legacy.
“Suicide Silence will continue.”
Much to my chagrin.
In related news, seems Eddie is out of All Shall Perish, with the band posting, “All Shall Perish has continued before and will continue now.”
