About Suicidal Tendencies

Suicidal Tendencies is an American crossover thrash band formed in 1980 in Venice, California by vocalist Mike Muir, who is the only remaining original member of the band. Along with D.R.I., Corrosion of Conformity, and Stormtroopers of Death, they are often credited as one of “the fathers of crossover thrash”. The band is currently touring in support of its 2018 album, Still Cyco Punk After All These Years.

Show notes

For a band that’s older than I am, these guys haven’t slowed down a bit. Like a fine wine, they’ve only gotten better with age. Watching the band members intricately weave around one another in a “Circle Pit” swarm of chaos, I couldn’t help but wonder how they manage to do all of that without running into one another – all while playing highly technical heavy metal music.

SIDE NOTE: ST is awesome AF.

My ears are ringing and my back is killing me after that one.
