News! Suicide City - featuring ex-members of Kittie and Biohazard

Formed in the cold winter of 2005, The End recording artist SUICIDE CITY are gearing up for the release of its debut album FRENZY on August 4, 2009. The band's incredibly well-received 2005 EP Not My Year sold over 7,000 copies sans label support and garnered a wealth of white-hot media attention behind them.

Suicide City was conceived when Biohazard vocalist/guitarist Billy Graziadei met Karl Bernholtz, vocalist of the south Florida band The Groovenics. Soon joined by drummer Danny Lamagna (who had been recommended by members of Sworn Enemy) and Groovenics guitarist AJ Marchetta, the lineup was finally rounded out by former Kittie bassist Jennifer Arroyo.

Not the type of band to just wait around for things to happen, SUICIDE CITY self-released the aforementioned EP and saw success in the form of a “Best Unsigned Band” award from East Coast Romper. In 2006 Kerrang! called them “a mesmerizing presence” and said that they had “manic wide eyed energy.” They have also self-produced and released a live DVD, entitled Live From CBGB.
