(TeamRock Radio) Former All Shall Perish frontman Eddie Hermida says he still loves his former bandmates, even though they fired him. They say they were forced into the move after he joined Suicide Silence in place of late vocalist Mitch Lucker, who died in a motorbike accident last year.
But Hermida insists he holds no grudge. He tells Kerrang: "I tried really hard to make both bands work. In fact, we worked simultaneously, at least in the planning stages, for a couple of months.
"But ultimately the All Shall Perish boys didn't feel it was workable and we are where we are. Much love to the remaining members – timing is a crazy thing in life and everything happens for a reason. This is what was meant to be."
Hermida says it wasn't an easy decision to accept the Suicide Silence offer. "I definitely had reservations because Mitch was a prominent role model to many people, and those are enormous shoes to fill," he explains. more.
