When Mitch Lucker died by his own drunken hands in a motorcycle accident last Halloween, I figured it spelled curtains for the band as well.
It appears my hunch was correct.
In a new interview, Suicide Silence guitarist Mark Heylum says the boys don’t really have it in ‘em to carry on. At least not yet.
“Well the mindset right now is that none of us really have the energy after all of this,” says Heylum.
“From going 150,000 miles per hour in the band, going to a different country every week and going at it so hard, then all of a sudden stopping. We don’t want to do anything. We don’t want to think about what we’re going to do. We want to chill out for a little bit and then if something happens, it happens, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. It’s as simple as that.”
I think the band should just throw in the towel, or start over with a new name. Suicide Silence is no more, in a lot of people’s eyes — especially the band, it seems.
Heylum says that a live DVD, shot during a tribute show for Lucker, will “definitely” be released.
“We played in California last year and that will definitely be coming out, so we definitely have at least a couple of more releases in the coming year — DVD stuff and you know, like we said, we don’t have plans on anything else.”
