Suicide Silence signs w/ Century Media Records

The "rumor" we posted yesterday morning has now been confirmed. Here's the official word: Century Media Records is proud to announce Suicide Silence as the newest addition to its worldwide family. This devastating quintet from Riverside, CA immediately separated themselves from the underground through an undying work ethic and undeniable live performance. The group will enter the studio in March with John Travis (Kid Rock) to record their debut full-length, which is tentatively set for a summer release. Mitch Lucker (vocals) further describes the band's excitement over the new deal: "We're very excited to join such a historic roster alongside so many great metal bands. The Century Media Family is extremely hard working and dedicated to supporting the goals we've set as a band. They have a solid understanding of the direction we're looking to take this band and are just as much our friends as they are our record label at this point. Thank you to everyone who has been with us from the beginning and we can't wait to get back on the road to support the release of our new record later this year. See you all soon." Suicide Silence released a five-song EP for Third Degree Records in 2005, which was the perfect testament to the damage the band is capable of inflicting. Their music clearly represents their many influences, incorporating a savage mix of death metal, grindcore, black metal, hardcore and doom elements into each track. The group's most notable and defining niche is defying the genre's predictable conventions, striving to create something more exciting and unique. The songs are dynamic and crushing, shifting effortlessly from insane grind chaos into surgically precise, disorienting time signatures topped off with snail-paced grooves and destructive breakdowns. Following an acclaimed performance at last year's New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, Suicide Silence spent the remainder of the summer on their first headlining U.S. run. This would lead immediately into their first U.K. headlining tour, helping them further garner a rabid worldwide underground following. Their buzz quickly caught the attention of promoters nationwide helping them land some opening spots on such major tours as Sepultura to close out the year. In February, the group hit the road with Kataklysm and Sworn Enemy, which will be followed up with a massive U.S. run supporting Bury Your Dead this spring. Suicide Silence adheres to no preconceived notions and refuses to be pigeonholed into any specific genre. The juxtaposition of each member's talents creates an explosive, yet exciting result that is sure to keep the entire scene on their toes and wondering just what is coming next. Expect the boundaries of conventionality to be shattered in 2007 with this dynamic debut release. You can check them out here.

This is total pathecy. Why the fck are they selling this shit now.


ourxpromises 2/28/2007 2:00:04 PM

first first post... who cares...


alexcreate 2/28/2007 2:01:11 PM

they're so terribly overrated.

who would write this... why... would they?


vdburns 2/28/2007 2:05:56 PM

Nothing shocking, bad label signs bad band. Century Media does few things right these days.


oopsbrokemyhip 2/28/2007 2:08:43 PM

kid rock wtf?


phdevice 2/28/2007 2:09:03 PM

I'm proud of any band who has done that much touring before getting signed.


jayforklift 2/28/2007 2:09:04 PM

Right of, course. Selling tons of records worldwide and being considered one of the leading metal labels in the world means nothing just because YOU don't like it. Sorry, I forgot your opinion is the only one that matters. Douche bag.


xvegeedgex 2/28/2007 2:12:36 PM

Haha Kid Rock!? Give me a break. I like this band though, good for them. A bit overrated is right.


yougottold 2/28/2007 2:18:57 PM

"Suicide Silence adheres to no preconceived notions and refuses to be pigeonholed into any specific genre" How about boring Deathcore crap.

I love how all the people that are licking their buttholes, and getting defensive have 1 post.


lefthandpath 2/28/2007 3:20:21 PM

Not suprised...Century Media needed their version of Job For a Cowboy now that Metal Blade signed them. Terrible music, terrible labels


threexs 2/28/2007 3:21:44 PM

real generic, but good dudes


vdburns 2/28/2007 3:33:58 PM

"jayforklift" Is your boyfriend in the band, or are you just that butthurt that I insulted the band that got you into "hardcore"? Cry about it, my opinion is the only one that matters to me.

mickeyoneill 3/1/2007 12:18:16 AM

in summation: shit band signs to label to record with the guy who produced some of kid rock's "music". that's cool, i guess, if you like listening to the audio equivelant of AIDS


bard7741 3/1/2007 12:24:12 AM

good dudes, i'm glad their hardwork is paying off.


a_new_religion 3/1/2007 3:08:15 AM

ive always liked suicide silence, but this whole article just made me laugh.


boredtodeath 3/1/2007 9:16:19 AM

dumb. the same boring shitty comments for every news that was posted. guys, get a life!


timxcore 3/1/2007 11:21:35 AM

terrible band, overrated, etc. lol @ kid rock producer. century media was once a good label before they fell into this shitcore trend.


withoutashield 3/1/2007 11:29:18 AM

Good for them and all.. but I can see why Century Media signed them. Every little kid jocks them because they have grind-ish parts and breakdowns.


Entrail607 3/1/2007 2:04:16 PM

your all fcking gays. you onviously havent heard of SS if they are boring deathcore....abd century media is a good label they have shadows fall you stupid fcking mutants. you all make me (sic).


likeatonabricks 3/1/2007 2:05:33 PM

great band, they work fcking hard, last year i saw them 3 or 4 times, different tours everytime. They fcking deserve a good signing, hope to smoke more blunts when you come back to FL. fck yea for bodkins being sponsored by royal blunts :)


tdsr 3/1/2007 2:38:58 PM

shit fcking rules, word


xgabex 3/1/2007 7:31:12 PM

this band toured non stop with no label backing and have a huge fan base. you guys that are bashing this band probably hate them because they're getting too big for your elite attitudes. good guys, no egos, good band and bree free now.


thtshrkwsrl 3/1/2007 7:38:20 PM

this band is awful.


Munderbite 3/1/2007 9:30:56 PM

Classic label laziness, "here is a band from southern California that a bunch of idiots like, we'll sign them." It's no better than signing Mantis because they were on that Ozzfest show.


probablyyomomma 3/3/2007 2:14:40 AM

definitely a hardworking, touring band. it's awesome they did as much independent touring as they did, but they are NOT an innovative band. everything they're doing has been done, hence not innovative. congrats on being signed though
