Mike Muir on the possibility of new music from Suicidal Tendencies

It’s been more than two years since Suicidal Tendencies released their most recent record 13. Frontman Mike Muir was recently interviewed by Loudwire, where he spoke about the possibility of new music from the iconic crossover band or any of his other musical projects. He states:

“One of the good things or bad things nowadays is that, in the old days studios were so expensive and you had to plan everything out and now everybody’s got their own little ProTools so you don’t have to worry about the time aspect. The good side is that you can always create music and write music, the bad side is that music really doesn’t sell and you sit there and go, “I love this song, why do I have to try and sell it?” I think it’s changed in a way where I got three kids and I don’t parade my kids like other people and I just want them to do their own thing. My dad didn’t want to push us to any particular thing, he just wanted to expose us to different things and find something we felt comfortable with. With my kids they have to have their own journey and that’s what life should be about and making sure that they don’t fall off the cliff while they’re experimenting.”

When new music from Suicidal Tendencies will be released is unknown, but we’ll keep you posted as more details come to light. Next month, the band is going on tour with Slipknot in Europe, and then tour the U.S. with Megadeth, Children of Bodom and Havok.

Infectious Grooves, a side project by Suicidal Tendencies‘ Mike Muir, have announced that the original lineup is getting back together for at least one performance at this year’s “Orion Music + More” festival, hosted by the heavy metal legends Metallica. The festival will take place June 8-9 at Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan.

The original lineup of Infectious Grooves, which lasted from 1989 to 1992, consisted of Muir on vocals, Dean Pleasants (Suicidal Tendencies) on guitar, Adam Siegel (Excel) on guitar, Robert Trujillo (who was also a member of Suicidal and is now in Metallica) on bass and Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) on drums.

Suicidal Tendencies reunite onstage with former bassist Robert Trujillo

Last Saturday (June 23rd), Suicidal Tendencies reunited onstage with their former bassist Robert Trujillo, who has been in Metallica for about a decade. There, the band (along with Trujillo) played the songs “Punk It Up” and “Violent & Funky”, which are by Infectious Grooves, a funk side project that Trujillo was involved in. A fan-made video of the show can be found here.

Trujillo was a member of Suicidal Tendencies from 1989 to their breakup in 1995 and is credited for adding funk elements to their music. His recordings with S.T. include Controlled By Hatred/Feel Like Shit…Deja Vu (1989), Lights…Camera…Revolution! (1990), The Art of Rebellion (1992) and Suicidal for Life (1994). He also appeared on the 1993 compilation album Still Cyco After All These Years, a re-recording of the band’s self-titled debut album.

Suicidal Tendencies’ last studio album was released back in 2000, though they reportedly have three albums in the can and ready for release. Next weekend, the band will be embarking on a European tour.



Random Cover Song: Infectious Grooves – “Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today, it’s the Infectious Grooves covering one of Led Zeppelin’s well-known songs “Immigrant Song”. The original version is from Led Zeppelin’s 1970 album Led Zeppelin III, while the Infectious Grooves’ version appears on their 1993 album Sarsippius’ Ark. In case you don’t know who the Infectious Grooves are, it’s a side project started by Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir and former bassist Robert Trujillo, who is now in Metallica. You can check out the cover of “Immigrant Song” and compare it to the original here.
