Songfacts®:

  • "Doris" was the fastest song to come together on the Suicide Silence album. Frontman Eddie Hermida explained to HMV.com:

    "'Doris' was our rush delivery song on the record. We always set out to write one song from scratch in the studio, something that we didn't have time to work on in pre-production. That song had one riff and while we were in the blackout chamber and it just came out of a jam.

    I am extremely happy that became our first single because even being written last that song had the biggest shock value on the whole record. The falsetto vocals were something that I really wanted to mix into this world. It was my way of putting two middle fingers in the air and shooting from the hip!"
