Peter Bailey of the Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom-based "Metalheadz" radio show conducted an interview with guitarist Mark Heylmun of California deathcore masters SUICIDE SILENCE at the end of October during the band's U.K. tour with DEVILDRIVER and BEHEMOTH. Watch the chat below.
SUICIDE SILENCE will embark on a U.S. tour with MEGADETH and MACHINE HEAD starting on November 14 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Additional support will come from ARCANIUM and WARBRINGER on select shows.
Commented vocalist Mitch Lucker: "It is a huge honor to be touring this fall throughout North America with MEGADETH and MACHINE HEAD, who our entire band worship. This is a big opportunity for us to take our crushing live shows to the unsuspecting masses and it's always a great feeling seeing the bewildered looks on people's faces during our sets as they weren't expecting to be bludgeoned to death for 30 minutes. We go out on stage with one sole intention in mind: to blow people's fuckin' heads off. This is going to be one of the biggest parties of the year, so we hope to see you all out there for a crushing night of unrelenting metal the way it was meant to be delivered by some of the all time best."
