Suicide Silence's Mark Heylmun Explains Absence From Band

Suicide Silence

Suicide Silence guitarist Mark Heylmun has shared via social media the reason why he has not joined the band on the road and been replaced by Darkest Hour's Mike "Lonestar" Carrigan

He had this to say, "So the cat is outta the bag... I'm not on tour with the band. I've been on radical sabbatical since about February of this year. I just feel I need a break to spend time with my family and give my mind and body the attention it deserves. I've abused myself for years and a member of my families health has got me aware of mortality and the length of time I may have on this earth. It landed me on the 'it's all or nothing' state of mind for the band... and right now the attention I am used to giving the band is not there.

"I am not in a bad way of any sort or in a depressed state, I just wanna listen to my heart and do what feels right. It has never steered me wrong in the past. So with that I'm still writing music, planning new ventures, and I WILL be back to ripping for SS when the time is right. Super stoked @lonestardh is filling in for me on #Ragefest. Peace & Love y'all!!"
