About Davey Suicide
A Los Angeles-based hard rock/metal troupe with a knack for pairing vintage Sunset Strip sleaze with theatrical, arena-ready industrial rock, Davey Suicide is also the name of the group's mastermind. Emerging in 2012 with the EP Put Our Trust in Suicide, the band has since issued a string of sleazy, yet innovative goth-industrial LPs, including World Wide Suicide (2014), Made from Fire (2017), and Rock Ain't Dead (2020).
Davey Suicide were founded in 2010 by frontman and namesake Davey Suicide alongside Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura. The group introduced their self-described "gutter goth rock" to the masses in 2012 on their debut EP, Put Our Trust in Suicide, which was released via Cleveland, Ohio-based independent label Standby Records. They dropped their eponymous full-length debut the following year, with their sophomore outing, World Wide Suicide, arriving in 2014. They spent the next year-and-a-half in a grueling legal battle with Standby over album rights and contractual breaches, resulting in the release of a tell-all video from Suicide himself that ultimately went viral. A settlement was reached in early 2016, and in August of that year the band issued the anthemic single "Rise Above" in anticipation of the release of their third studio long-player, Made from Fire, which arrived in 2017 and peaked at number 24 on the Billboard charts. Rock Ain't Dead, the group's fourth full-length effort, followed in 2020. ~ James Christopher Monger
