Oakland, California-based extreme metallers ALL SHALL PERISH have released the following statement:
"Earlier today, the official announcement came out that [singer] Hernan 'Eddie' Hermida has joined SUICIDE SILENCE.
"Eddie has quit ALL SHALL PERISH to join SUICIDE SILENCE full time.
"To all our fans who want to know about the future of ALL SHALL PERISH, keep this in mind: Mike Tiner [bass] has been a major writer in the band and will continue to be.
"We had big shoes to fill when guys like Chris Storey and original vocalist Craig Betit left ALL SHALL PERISH, but we were able to rebound with the addition of massive talents like Adam Pierce, Francesco Artusato and Eddie Hermida. Eddie has big shoes to fill himself, stepping in for our fallen brother Mitch Lucker.
"ALL SHALL PERISH has continued before and will continue now.
"We wish SUICIDE SILENCE all the best."
ALL SHALL PERISH's fourth full-length album, "This Is Where It Ends", sold around 8,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Awaken The Dreamers", opened with 5,000 copies back in 2008 to land at No. 126.
"This Is Where It Ends" was released in July 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. The majority of the effort was recorded and mixed once again at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland with producer Zack Ohren (LIGHT THIS CITY, DECREPIT BIRTH, SUFFOCATION).
