The name, “Suicide” is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there’s no ceiling for what we are capable of.“
Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleeze and theatrics into their own “nu” brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills heavy metal, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. "Rock fans haven’t gone anywhere,“ Suicide exclaims, “they just need a reason to fall in love again,” Suicide Exclaims.
