Suicide Silence announce ‘The Cleansing’ 10th anniversary tour

Posted by on September 6, 2017

Ten years ago, Suicide Silence’s acclaimed debut album The Cleansing was released. Since then, the group have unleashed four more studio albums,  including their latest controversial self-titled effort. How to bounce back from one of the most polarizing albums of the year? Perhaps by celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of the most influential of all deathcore albums. The band are wrapping up  by commemorating The Cleansing’s 10th anniversary and performing in its entirety via a North American tour. Support on this journey will include Upon a Burning Body, Slaughter to Prevail and Prison. Winds of Plague will join in on select dates. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 am PST.

Guitarist Mark Heylmun commented:

“10 fucking years!! The Cleansing was a record we wrote when most of us were in our early 20’s. I was in my teens still! My has the time flown by. All we knew back then was we wanted to offend ppl and piss in the face of the mainstream (Dying Fetus pun intended). We’ve wanted to do a commemorative tour for this record for years now and the time has come. The Cleansing broke us into the metal world and the record came from a very special place, a fresh place, a place that words fail when I try to describe it, and without it…well we wouldn’t be here attempting to describe it.

Mitch had a vision for this record, he wanted to set a standard for our scene and in my eyes he created much much more. Since his passing, Eddie has paid homage to Mitch‘s vox on this record every night. It’s something very close to our hearts to have Eddie singing these songs with us. Mitch and Eddie inspired each other, exchanged vocal tips, and both have the passion for the most brutal sounds you can humanly make and it’s going to be an amazing show for us and for you. Emotions will be high, maybe we will be high too, you don’t want to miss this. Let’s fucking party! Come celebrate with us cuz this will only happen once!”
