Suicide Silence is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Hermida to the family. 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 U.S. headlining run, in 2006.

Have you met Sorority Noise? I sure hope not, otherwise what are we even doing here? A fuzzy, dirty pop-rock band who probably belong in mid-90's England rather than 2013 Connecticut, Sorority Noise features Cameron Boucher (Old Gray) on vocals, Kevin O'Donnell on bass and Jason Rule on drums (both of Two Humans semi-fame).

It's like Morrissey's little brother high-fiving the good parts of Daisy. And that's a fact, not up for interpretation. Please don't go against the family on this one. Bye love you.
