Vocalist Mitch Lucker and lead guitarist Mark Heylmun of California deathcore masters SUICIDE SILENCE were interviewed on the latest Metal Injection Livecast. They revealed some information on the band’s new album, “The Black Crown”, including why they chose to work with producer Steve Evetts, and they aired three tracks from the CD — “You Only Live Once”, “Human Violence” and “Fuck Everything”.
“The Black Crown” is scheduled for release on July 12 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded with heavyweight producer Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, EVERY TIME I DIE, HATEBREED).
The cover artwork for “The Black Crown” was created by the Delaware-based freelance graphic designer and illustrator Ken “K3N” Adams, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD.
“‘The Black Crown’ is our most mature, well-produced, and well-written record as a band,” Lucker told AOL‘s Noisecreep. “People should come see us play songs from it live on [this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink] Mayhem [Festival] this summer, or buy it when it comes out!”
Lucker also revealed that “The Black Crown” will be SUICIDE SILENCE‘s third and final release for longtime label Century Media Records. Lucker noted that the band will be free agents after the release of this album.
SUICIDE SILENCE‘s last album, “No Time To Bleed”, sold 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart. The effort was made available on June 30, 2009 in a number of different versions.
“No Time To Bleed” was recorded with acclaimed producer Machine (LAMB OF GOD).
