||ALL SHALL PERISH SINGER EDDIE HERMIDA IS THE NEW SUICIDE SILENCE FRONTMAN
7th October 2013
Suicide Silence have announced their new vocalist as All Shall Perish singer Eddie Hermida. Eddie will fill the void of recently deceased vocalist Mitch Lucker.
The Metal collective hung its head in sadness one year ago after injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident killed Mitch Lucker on November 1st.
Lucker had been drinking on Halloween and despite his wife's pleas, the singer chose to drive his bike, unfortunately crashing in Hermosa Beach shortly after.

After memorializing Lucker, Suicide Silence remained relatively quiet for almost an entire year, until a new recorded version of 'You Only Live Once' with a new mystery singer was released by the band. Now Suicide Silence officially announced Eddie Hermida as their new frontman:
"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.
"Mitch & 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 & 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 & carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage it will be in his honor & for his legacy. Suicide Silence will continue."
Eddie Hermida quit All Shall Perish just hours after joining Suicide Silence.
