Chelsea Grin has announced that they will be releasing a double album, which will be released individually across two parts. The first half is called Suffer In Hell and will be out on November 11th. Notably, this part features a cameo from Trevor Strnad, the late frontman of The Black Dahlia Murder. The second half of the double effort is called Suffer In Heaven and will release on March 17th through eh band’s new label ONErpm.
The first single from the first release, Suffer In Hell is called “Origin Of Sin” and is available below with a video shot by Eric DiCarlo.
Tom Barber, the band’s vocalist offered the following:
“It is written that human life has crawled forth from the darkest points of our existence, it is said life even when set a blaze returns a new like a phoenix from ash. Many men have proclaimed to see, understand, and sometimes claim to have a gift from the gods. This is our creation for you, each song a representation of the trials and tribulations of life, each word chosen to represent an emotion, there is no greater story than the unknown and we believe this record will paint a picture only your mind can see.
We talk about self-doubt, overcoming inner demons, triumph of good over evil, and living neutrally amongst the darkness. Also, I can’t really think about a reason for a double record other than it’s fucking bad ass.”
In case you were wondering, Pablo Viveros, the band’s drummer/vocalist is currently absent. He appears to be touring with country artist Jon Langston for the time being. The band and Viveros himself offered the following explanation:
“As many of you have noticed, Pablo hasn’t been performing with us for the last couple of tours. During the downtime over the pandemic, Pablo made commitments with another artist to perform and tour. While he has not fully departed Chelsea Grin, we have mutually agreed for him to take a hiatus to fulfill his commitments and have time to recharge.
We fully support and respect his decision, and understand the toll that touring in our circuit can take on the mind and body. We love him dearly, and cannot wait to have him back out with us. In the meantime, make sure to show him some love in his new endeavor.
We appreciate everyone’s support despite our relative absence online. This down time has been used to organize our individual lives at home, as well as to devote as much energy as possible toward creating new material that delivers in way we haven’t achieved before.
We’re very excited to unveil what has been happening behind the scenes, and to continue bringing metal to the masses. You’ll be seeing much more of us in the near future.”
