“You Can’t Stop Me”, SUICIDE SILENCE’s first album to feature vocalist Hernan “Eddie” Hermida and their first since the tragic loss of singer Mitch Lucker, was released in July 2014 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
“You Can’t Stop Me” was produced and mixed by Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), who worked with the band not only on “The Black Crown”, but also on some instrumental demos for the new CD just prior to Lucker’s death in the fall of 2012.
Mitch Lucker died November 1, 2012 after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach that Halloween night.
