Over a year ago, Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir stated that their latest album World Gone Mad could be their last one. In a recent interview, however, former Slayer and current Suicidal drummer Dave Lombardo expressed hope that the band will make another album:
“I hope. I really hope. I feel like that guy has a lot more creativity in him and a lot more energy than to throw in the towel. I feel Mike is on top of his game, and he’s got a great band and great history with this band and I think that we should keep going, and I hope he does. And I’m not gonna stop asking him to record. I’m going to make sure that I keep bugging him: ‘Man, we’ve gotta record. Let’s do some recording. C’mon, let’s record another album. Why not?’ I try to motivate the musicians I’m with because there’s no reason to stop. You’ve gotta keep recording, you’ve gotta keep creating. It’s what we do for a living.”

World Gone Mad was released last September, and is their first album since 2013’s 13. It’s also the band’s first with the new lineup of Mike Muir, Dean Pleasants, Jeff Pogan, Ra Diaz and Dave Lombardo.
