Eddie Hermida Leaves All Shall Perish To Join Suicide Silence
Suicide Silence had the following to say about their new frontman, "For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006.
"Mitch and Eddie remained long-time friends and we felt that if the band were to continue it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an artist.
"We've chosen Eddie as our new frontman in association with this long-standing relationship and countless other attributes from his quality of character to his dynamic vocal abilities that make him the absolute best fit for this band.
"We hope you all will embrace this decision with open arms understanding that this is what Mitch would have wanted. He would want his brothers to stick together & carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage it will be in his honor and for his legacy. Suicide Silence will continue."
A short time later, All Share Perish released this statement, "Earlier today, the official announcement came out that Hernan "Eddie" Hermida has joined Suicide Silence. Eddie has quit All Shall Perish to join Suicide Silence full time.
"To all our fans who want to know about the future of ASP, keep this in mind: Mike Tiner has been a major writer in the band and will continue to be. We had big shoes to fill when guys like Chris Storey and original vocalist Craig Betit left All Shall Perish, but we were able to rebound with the addition of massive talents like Adam Pierce, Francesco Artusato and Eddie Hermida.
