SUICIDE SILENCE's HERNAN 'EDDIE' HERMIDA Reveals His Ultimate Tour Lineup (Video)
March 23, 2015
Each episode of "Dream Tour" features a touring act discussing who they would put on their ideal tour if there was no limits. In the episode below, Hernan "Eddie" Hermida, vocalist for California deathcore masters SUICIDE SILENCE, discusses his ultimate tour lineup.
"You Can't Stop Me", SUICIDE SILENCE's first album to feature Hermida and their first since the tragic loss of singer Mitch Lucker, was released in July 2014 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
"You Can't Stop Me" was produced and mixed by Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN),who worked with the band not only on "The Black Crown", but also on some instrumental demos for the new CD just prior to Lucker's death in the fall of 2012.
Mitch Lucker died November 1, 2012 after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach that Halloween night.
Regarding the decision to enlist Hermida, guitarist Mark Heylmun told Metalholic.com: "There was really nobody else — we didn't want to try anybody out. We didn't want to call people and be, like, 'You wanna come and jam with us?' That's not how this situation seemed like it would work for us. Eddie was just a friend. Somebody that we know is extremely talented, and someone that could put the passion behind the job that it is. To not replace Mitch or be the singer of this band, but to treat the gig that it is. He's replacing an idol to so many people and he's also coming into a band that preexists, which is the other four members of it. We just knew he would be able to handle it with respect and knock it out of the park."
