Suicide Silence Play ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’
This week’s episode of ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ confirms and debunks all the little details of deathcore giants Suicide Silence. Guitarists Chris Garza and Mark Heylmun sat down with us to prove and disprove what’s written about them on Wikipedia.
After Suicide Silence released their polarizing self-titled album earlier this year, trolls demolished the band’s Wikipedia pages, adding “tee-hee” wherever possible. Wikipedia seemed to clean up all the destruction, but we wanted to know if there was any leftover damage.
We started back at Suicide Silence’s formation and debut performance. Like most bands’ first shows, the audience didn’t seem to care much, according to a recollection from Garza. He also spoke about the band’s short stint with two vocalists, Mitch Lucker and Tanner Womack, and how the two originally split harsh and clean vocal duties on the original recording of “Stand Strong.”
Suicide Silence cleared up some fiction about the No Time to Bleed cut “…And Then She Bled.” Wikipedia states the band used a 911 emergency call from 2009 when a woman was attacked by her pet chimpanzee Travis. Turns out the band didn’t use the actual call to avoid potentially getting in trouble, opting instead to recreate the call and adding music that was “appropriate to the situation.”
