SUICIDE SILENCE Fired Their Management Because They Didn’t Like The New Album

SUICIDE SILENCE vocalist Eddie Hermida said that the band fired their manager and their agent because they didn’t support direction the band was going with their latest self-titled album.

Hermida says to Live Metal: “The biggest thing we’ve done was right before we started writing this record, our agent stopped wanting to work with us and we had to get a new agent. We got rid of our manager, and we got new management.

“We pretty much started weeding the people out who were not with this music – the people that believed we needed to stick to a certain criteria as musicians, people who were stuck worrying about money and not worried about anything else. That’s the s**t that steered us away from them.”

SUICIDE SILENCE‘s new self-titled album sold only 4,650 copies in its first week of release in the U.S. – 69% drop from the first week sales of 2014’s You Can’t Stop Me, which sold 15,000. Album also debuted at #98 on the charts in Germany, a steep decline from their #24 debut on the charts for their previous album, 2014’s “You Can’t Stop Me”. Both albums featured current vocalist Eddie Hermida.
