Fresh off the news that the band had split with longtime drummer Alex Lopez, Suicide Silence have unleashed a raging new single, "Thinking in Tongues." The song, which marks the deathcore veterans' final recording with Lopez, is available today (May 4th) on all digital platforms, and its music video, directed by Vicente Cordero for Industrialism Films, will premiere at 7 p.m. CET/1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
"Thinking in Tongues" arrives ahead of the May 6th launch of Suicide Silence's co-headlining Chaos & Carnage Tour with Carnifex. Ernie Iniguez, who recorded additional drums on the band's latest album, 2020's Become the Hunter, will fill-in live on the trek.
"This song derives from the chaotic feeling of losing one's mind," Suicide Silence commented of "Thinking in Tongues." "Feeling like you're choking on every breath you take until you eventually break. Debilitating confusion sets in and your mind begins 'Thinking in Tongues,' essentially processing thoughts that not even you yourself can understand. In a sense, this song evokes the ultimate sense of helplessness."
