Riverside, California-based extreme metal quintet SUICIDE SILENCE just completed a sold-out European trek with PARKWAY DRIVE and BURY YOUR DEAD. The group will make its triumphant return to the U.S. in early July as part of the summer's much-anticipated Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour alongside SLIPKNOT, DISTURBED and MACHINE HEAD, among a slew of others.

Chris Garza (guitars) comments: "We are happy to be home and take it easy after a few weeks of European madness. Every night was fucking killer. A huge thank you to all that went ape shit at the shows. PARKWAY DRIVE and BURY YOUR DEAD were a blast to tour with and it seemed to be the perfect package for us. We will take the month of June to begin writing for our next album. Lots of crazy ideas are flying around. Then get ready to get your face bashed in after a full day of metal at the Mayhem tour with SLIPKNOT! They have been one of my favorite bands since I was in junior high so its gonna be a good time. Come out to hang and drink some beers with us. See you all in July.

Garza and Mark Heylmun (guitars) are currently featured in Guitar World that has Dan Donegan (DISTURBED) on the cover, which hits stands next week. Garza recently completed a series of instructional videos for YouTube and in the first episode he breaks down how to play "Unanswered" in addition to going over his guitar rig setup. Check it out below.
