Suicide Silence will be back on Feb. 24 with their self-titled album, their fifth overall and the follow-up to July 2014's You Can't Stop Me. The California deathcore five-piece are stoking the blastbeat-fueled fire today with the video for "Doris," premiering at Blabbermouth.

Suicide Silence was produced by Ross Robinson, whose hallowed work includes records by Korn and Slipknot. In December, guitarist Mark Heylmun told Revolver (via Blabbermouth) that "it's going to completely change everything you probably ever will think, and have thought, or ever will fucking feel about Suicide Silence." To which vocalist Eddie Hermida added:
