Suicidal Tendencies part ways with guitarist Nico Santora

Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Nico Santora announced on his Facebook page that he has left the band to dedicate himself full-time to his metal side project Lillake, who have an album on the way. He explains:

“To whom it may concern: I will no longer be playing guitar in Suicidal Tendencies and will be focusing on my new band Lillake as well as opening my availability to tour with other bands. I’m not getting into details and won’t be answering messages about why or what happened, etc. I’ve put my time in, and am ready for new things. It’s been an amazing 4 years, and I am sincerely thankful and grateful to everyone who has supported me from the beginning.”

Who will replace Santora on their upcoming European tour is unknown, but rumor has it that either Mike Clark (whom Santora had replaced back in 2012) or Rocky George (who was the lead guitarist for Suicidal from 1984 to their temporary breakup in 1995) will return to the band. We’ll keep you posted as more details on a replacement for Santora come to light.

Santora isn’t the only member of Suicidal to have left or been missing out on their current activities. Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo filled in for Eric Moore (also a member of Lillake) on the band’s U.S. tour with Megadeth last February, and will be filling in for him again on future tours, which has lead to speculation that Lombardo is a full-time member of Suicidal, but neither Suicidal nor Moore or Lombardo themselves have commented on the situation.

Suicidal Tendencies recently announced plans to release a new EP and full-length later this year. Their most recent studio album 13 was released in 2013.



Suicidal Tendencies rumored to be joined permanently by Dave Lombardo, South American tour in the works

Rumors are circulating that former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo is now a permanent member of Suicidal Tendencies.

As you may recall, Lombardo joined the band last February on their U.S. tour with Megadeth, and will be back behind the drum kit on their upcoming European tour, which kicks off next month. Sources are now reporting that Lombardo is going to join Suicidal once more on their summer South American tour, which includes one show in São Paulo on July 2nd, with more dates to be announced; this leads to speculation that Lombardo is a permanent member of the band.

Suicidal Tendencies have yet to address the rumors whether drummer Eric Moore (whom Lombardo had replaced on their recent tours) is still a member of the band. Despite his absence from touring, Moore recently teamed up with Suicidal guitarist Nico Santora on the metal side project Lillake, who have an album in the works and just released three new songs (“Killing Game“, “How Becoming“, and “Become“). We’ll keep you posted as more details on Moore or Lombardo’s status in Suicidal come to light.

Suicidal Tendencies to release an EP and new album this year

Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir apparently told The Bulletin that the band will release a new EP, followed by an album with all-new material, this year. He did not reveal any information about these new releases, but hinted that these may be the band’s final recordings. Muir did say, however, that he is open to continuing Suicidal without any new releases:

“Musically, style-wise, more people are like, ‘Is it punk, is it metal, is it this, is it that?’ They’re into categories. But it goes back to my dad; my dad said, ‘You never know what you’re gonna like until you find something that moves you,’ whether that’s physically or mentally. We’re more concerned on if something’s gonna move somebody mentally or emotionally, rather than this certain style.”

Suicidal Tendencies, who are currently on tour with Megadeth, released their most recent album, ironically titled 13, in 2013.

For those who don’t know, Lombardo is no stranger to the Suicidal guys. Their friendship with Slayer dates back to the early 80’s; their singer/bassist Tom Araya appeared in the video for “Institutionalized“, and they took Suicidal out on the “Clash of the Titans” tour in Europe in 1990 (along with Megadeth and Testament). Along with his late bandmate Jeff Hanneman, Lombardo played in the short-lived punk rock band Pap Smear with then-Suicidal guitarist Rocky George in the mid-80’s; their songs “Can’t Stand You” and “D.D.A.M.M.” would be re-recorded on Slayer’s 1996 covers album Undisputed Attitude.

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.
