Interview with Suicide Silence Frontman Mitch Lucker

Aside from touring their asses off, which they've done pretty non-stop since the record came out, Suicide Silence have spent some time writing and recording new songs for their follow up, and according to singer Mitch Lucker, the new stuff blows their deubt, The Cleansing, away. Constant touring has made Suicide Silence better players and improved their musical chemistry. In addition, the next album won't be recorded live in the studio the way The Cleansing was, and the band will spend much longer in pre-production before they begin tracking.

Lucker shared these nuggets of wisdom with during our exclusive podcast interview. In addition, he discussed the band's origins and history, his obsessive compulsive disorder, contempt for categorization -- especially deathcore -- and hopes for the Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour. Also, Lucker talked about the bands Suicide Silence have toured with and revealed some of the group's most extreme antics and puke stories. Click here to listen to the podcast.
