Californian heavy hitters Suicide Silence are steadily gearing up for the release of their self-titled and fourth overall record later this month, and its already met a bit of backlash.
After a bit of unease when the band claimed there’d be around “70% clean vocals” on the album, the first two offerings ‘Doris’ and ‘Silence’ saw even more distaste, both currently seeing a higher unlike to like ratio on their YouTube streams.
Now, it seems fans are going a step further in showing just how much they dislike the band’s latest material, and have created an online petition aimed towards both the band and label Nuclear Blast Records, requesting that the album is not released. The petition can be found on Change.org (here).
Though the petition was set up as a joke by the Facebook page Sexually Transmitted Memes (here), the fans actually signing it and the accompanying comments sharing their reasons does continue to show how much fans don’t want to hear the band’s new music, and the levels at which they’ll go in an attempt to stop it seeing a release.
Suicide Silence‘s self-titled record is scheduled to see a release on February 24th 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.
