SUICIDE SILENCE have announced the addition of vocalist Eddie Hermida to the band's lineup.
Says the band: "Many of you may be familiar with Eddie through his work with ALL SHALL PERISH. For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first US headlining run, in 2006. Mitch and Eddie remained long-time 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. 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."
Suicide Silence vocalist Mitch Lucker passed away on November 1st, 2012, due to injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident.
