Suicide Silence: rumors of new singer unfounded

During the past week, there have been rumors circulating that Suicide Silence has found a replacement for Mitch Lucker, who tragically passed away six months ago. Specifically, ex-Suffokate vocalist Ricky Hoover has been rumored to be the band's new frontman. The talk seems to have picked up considerable steam during the last 48 hours as a simple Twitter search for "Suicide Silence" yields a slew of related comments and questions. In addition to the fact that it seems unlikely that Suicide Silence would line up a replacement at this time, Hoover himself has now taken to Twitter to debunk the rumors, posting the following: Ricky Hoover denies Suicide Silence rumors So, for the time being at least, we consider the matter closed.

They are going to have a new singer sometime probably soon. I was told by someone with inside contacts a couple months ago that it would be someone that performed with them at the Mitch memorial show, but I couldn't get who it was out of them. I expect them to be back touring this year.

God ricky is a gay. Looks like a circus freak covered in all straight edge tattoos. Only thing gayer than sobriety is god. And ricky.

Ricky... that ASSWHOLE!

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:02:45 AM

Just let Suicide Silence die already. Quit and leave behind a legacy. Pantera and Despised Icon did and they get respect for it...well about as much respect as lambgoaters give em which is none considering everyone on this site is either negative, unhappy with their life, or pissed cause no one wants to play in their shitty band that only plays bars

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:04:44 AM

I know who their new singer is. All I will say is it's the vocalist of a band that split around the same time as Mitch's death

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:08:48 AM

Lol at the guy who compared suicide silence to pantera

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:09:19 AM

Lame. The only way suicide silence could suck any more is with a singer named Hoover. Would have been a perfect fit.

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:16:22 AM

If Suicide Silence does get a new singer, im goin with Greg from Oblige/The Devastated. Dude was really good friends with Mitch

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:29:30 AM


cubicle_gangster 5/1/2013 9:32:18 AM

Band should follow in Mitch's footsteps and drop fcking dead. #drivedrunkanddie

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:47:57 AM

Bro I really love California I think I'm gonna move there bro. Can I sign with you guys tonight bro? I'll pay you back bro I swear bro.

anonymous 5/1/2013 10:03:37 AM

"Passed away" is playing a little loose with the facts of the incident, I'd say.

anonymous 5/1/2013 10:10:32 AM

I'd bet money it is Greg from The Devastated. Would at least in part, explain why his band suddenly broke up. He is friends with Mitch's widow as well

LoydChristmas1 hour ago lol at having suizide silenze "inside contacts"

anonymous 5/1/2013 10:46:52 AM

I'm cool with the band. W've hung out and all the guys are really cool. They tell me stuff. I know who their singer is going to be. We're cool like that. I hang out with them at shows. We're cool. They stay at my house so I know things. I know who it is. I know I'm not telling cuz I'm a giant gay.

anonymous 5/1/2013 10:57:23 AM

Cade is stoked.

anonymous 5/1/2013 12:00:51 PM

The guy who compared Pantera to Suicide Silence... Holy fcking LOL you're an idiot

anonymous 5/1/2013 12:57:01 PM

If she doesn't remember Animosity, dont put your c-ck in her.

long_insured_now 5/1/2013 2:29:59 PM

Just when I thought this site couldn't get any worse, someone has suicide silence inside contacts and someone else compared suicide silence to Pantera. I heard the new singer is James Hetfield.. you only live once YYYYYEEEEAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW WW

anonymous 5/1/2013 3:04:23 PM

They're definitely getting a new singer. Have heard they may change names, but they're going to continue. They were looking for a new singer within a week or so of Mitch's death. My money's on Greg from Devastated, as well.

fragmentedflesh 5/1/2013 3:53:28 PM

Ricky Hoover can die anytime now. Thatd be tight.

anonymous 5/1/2013 4:12:29 PM

Legacy? yes, mallcore needs a chisling in the archives of wikipedia, the time when heavy music was considered not heavy and all the dudes dressed like a bunch of c*nts, what a proud moment it was for middle school/high school teens, 12 color full print shirts were also on the rise again. Legacy indeed.

anonymous 5/1/2013 5:19:48 PM

Scott Lewis is the new singer

anonymous 5/1/2013 9:26:33 PM

Basedgod is the new vocalist. I have an ultra secret exclusive source.

SS will be announcing their new Singer in one month.

anonymous 7/20/2013 11:42:45 PM

Only person I see with the vocals to ever EVER even come close to Mitch is Randy from Lamb of God.

anonymous 8/2/2013 8:11:35 AM

You're all wrong- he was a roadie...

anonymous 8/8/2013 4:17:27 AM
