Songfacts®:

  • Suicide Silence's eponymous fifth album deviates sharply from the band's established deathcore sound. This song represents one of their most marked departures featuring a lightly rumbling hypnotic riff over which Eddie Hermida croons ethereal, gloomy lyrics.

    "The way 'Dying In A Red Room' came about was simply being on tour in the back lounge one crazy night and that riff was spewed out and stuck," Hermida told Billboard magazine. "We started jamming it and that song was done quick and natural. We wanted that song to be very fluid. It's meant to be a love song to the ghosts we carry around with us. To never be afraid to be yourself or listen to your heart. In a way, that is always what this band has wanted to represent: fearlessness."
  • Vocalist Eddie Hermida told Alternative Press regarding their departure from deathcore on Suicide Silence, "We decided as a band to do something way outside the spectrum of what Suicide Silence has done in past. We wanted to maintain a heavy sound while exploring our love of music, and what came out surprised us 100 percent."
