As the Rockstar Energy Mayhem fest draws to a close there is no doubt in anyone's mind that SUICIDE SILENCE has emerged as one of the fest's breakthrough artists. This group, pioneers of the famed deathcore genre, have struck a nerve with fans across the country who are hungry for sheer, unrelenting aggression that pummels the listener with an unabashed mixture of brutality, precision and technicality.
SUICIDE SILENCE will embark on a massive headlining tour this fall, dubbed the "Cleansing The Nation" tour, with Emmure, Beneath The Massacre, After The Burial and Architects. The trek, which kicks off on Oct. 3rd, marks the end of the group's worldwide touring cycle for The Cleansing, their highly acclaimed debut offering. Head over to http://www.myspace.com/suicidesilence to view their complete touring itinerary.
Mitch Lucker (vocals) states: "The Rockstar Mayhem Tour was hands down the greatest tour we've ever done and we're proud to have been a part of its first year in existence. With that said, it's time to move forward and hit the road once again this October. Although we originally had The Dillinger Escape Plan onboard for this fall tour, they've recently dropped off and will not be a part of the package. Just to clarify any rumors floating around, their cancellation had nothing to do with tour politics, band drama or musical tastes. It simply couldn't work out for them this time around and we hope to team up with those guys in the near future. As far as the final 'Cleansing the Nation' lineup is concerned, we're very happy with how it turned out and we'll see you all on the road soon!"
