Stabbing vocalist Bridget Lynch fills in for Suffocation's Ricky Myers due to illness

On Tuesday, November 14th, while in Detroit, MI, Suffocation's lead vocalist, Ricky Myers, became unwell and deemed himself unfit to perform that evening. Just moments before the scheduled set, members Terrance Hobbs and Charlie Errigo of Suffocation approached Bridget Lynch, the vocalist for Stabbing, and requested her assistance in performing several songs from their setlist to avoid canceling the show.

Lynch, already familiar with most of the band's material, having provided guest vocals for the band the night before on the track "Liege on Inveracity," willingly stepped in. The group delivered a partial set featuring both full band and instrumental tracks. Lynch joined them for notable singles such as "Catatonia," "Pierced from Within," "Funeral Inception," "Liege of Inveracity," and "Infecting the Crypts." The remaining tracks, predominantly newer ones, were performed instrumentally.

Although Myers, still unwell, has not yet returned to the stage, Lynch has been handling dual responsibilities, serving as the frontwoman for both Suffocation and her own band, Stabbing. 

For a visual experience of the performance, you can view the video below.


Hopefully Myers recovers soon, the band is scheduled to be on the road alongside Incantation, Skeletal Remains, and Stabbing until early December. See the remaining dates below.
