Pretty Little Suicide


An open letter from PLS - An open letter to all of our friends and fans...

We know we've been keeping awfully quiet for a while now, and we just wanted to say we're sorry. There's been a lot going on behind the scenes in PLS, and it's been a confusing and hectic time, and we just wanted to get our ducks in a row before we clued you all in. Unfortunately, things kept coming up and the ducks kept getting knocked out of whack. Well, we're pretty close to being in order now, so here goes.

It all started back in August when our singer/lead guitarist Ed quit the band, which was a deeply saddening event for us all. Ed has his thoughts on what happened, or what should have, and we have ours - suffice it to say they are dramatically different. His departure made things confusing for a while, but we were fortunate enough to have Fitz step up on lead guitar, and Mike was willing to try singing, so we made the tough decision to carry on.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of it, and as we were preparing to go into the studio to record some new music for you all, Izzy informed us he had to step down for personal reasons. As any of you who have met Izzy know, this was heartbreaking news. Again fortune smiled upon us though, and we were lucky enough to have Ramon step up to the plate on drums.

So, meet the new band - Mike Patton on vocals & guitar, Mike "Fitz" Fitzback shredding away on the lead guitar, JC (the Boston Bassman) thundering away on bass guitar, and Ramon Miquilena shaking the earth behind the kit.

And when we say the new band, we mean it. Along with the new faces, the sound of Pretty Little Suicide has changed over the years, to the point where we are a new band. So along with the new faces and the new sound, we've made the difficult but exciting decision to adopt a new name. As of right now, Pretty Little Suicide will be known as 3 Parts Dead.

For those of you who are saddened by this news, fear not - 3 Parts Dead will be releasing our debut album in just a few weeks, kicking things off with a party downstairs at the Middle East in Boston, MA on Friday, April 5th. We're so excited about this record and this lineup that if you contact us for tickets ($10), we'll give you a copy of it.

So that's about it. We love you all and truly appreciate the overwhelming support you've shown us over the years, and we hope you'll continue to show it for this new venture. We encourage you to come join the new party at, and on Facebook.

Yours in rock n' roll,

Pretty Little Suicide / 3 Parts Dead

PLS lands most votes in first round of radio contest! - Thanks to the efforts of all of their friends, fans and supports, the first round of the WAAF/Cabo Wabo Your Shot to Rock contest has ended with PLS in the lead for votes.

"As a band, we are honored and humbled by the love and support everyone has shown us in this contest. You guys are all awesome! Now let's kick even more ass in the finals!!!" - Mike


Thanks Rocklahoma!!! - After two amazing shows at the Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, OK (alongside Motley Crue, Staind, Hinder, Poison, Papa Roach, Black Label Society, and the Gypsy Pistoleros amongst others), Pretty Little Suicide is back in Boston. The band saw many old friends, and made even more new ones, and would like to thank everyone who came out and made it such a great experience. So what's next? First up, hoping for a speedy recovery of lead guitarist/singer Ed Earle, who got home just in time for long overdue shoulder surgery. As soon as Ed is recovered, the band plans to take some time to play local and regional dates, before embarking on late summer/fall touring, hopefully to coincide with the release of the full length album. Check back for more details!
