Mike Muir talks about Suicidal Tendencies’ career

Fanpass conducted an interview with Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir at this year’s Rock on the Range festival, which was held May 16-18 at the Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. During the interview, which you can watch below, Mike talked about the band’s three-decade-plus-long existence, saying:

“My dad always says, ‘People who live in the past have no future.’ I think there’s a point where a lot of times in life people define things in such ways that it really limits them. Change is something that’s necessary, and I think there’s a difference between progress and just motion and stuff. And for us, I think one of the things is… Certain bands, you hear the records, and they kind of keep mimicking the same thing, and that’s all they know how to do, and that’s their comfort zone. And we’ve always said, a record should be like a chapter in a book; it should always go somewhere. Something you read in a book, it’s, like, ‘Cool,’ and somewhere else, you’re, like, ‘This is different.’ At the end, it all comes together, and then it’s, like, ‘Woah! This is great!’ And I think in a situation like this, we’re playing a festival and we’re playing songs. This song is 30 years old, this one’s a year old, but nobody sits there and goes, ‘Wow! That’s old. This and that.’ And I think that’s when you do something for the right reason — when you don’t try to fit into trends and things like that. Then you’re gonna have longevity.”

Suicidal Tendencies released 13, their first album in 13 years, last year. It is rumored that they have three new albums in the works.

Fan dies after stage dive at a Suicidal Tendencies concert

A 28-year-old heavy metal fan died from an apparent epileptic seizure after being seriously injured while stage diving at a Suicidal Tendencies concert in Switzerland at the Bern University Hospital last Friday (January 24th).

Reports say that the fan, whose real name is unknown, jumped from the stage during the band’s set at the Persistence Tour gig at Solothurn’s Kulturfabrik Kofmehl venue last Wednesday (January 22nd), but seemed to be fine after hitting the ground. Pipo Kofmehl, who runs the venue, said, “Unfortunately, crowd members failed to properly catch him and he fell to the ground.”

The stage dive was apparently a seemingly harmless incident, as the 28-year-old was seen walking around shortly after the fall, and he reportedly washed his hands and wanted to go home. Kofmehl, who has been in contact with the family of the deceased concert attendant, commented, “This is a huge concern for us. The whole thing is very, very tragic.”

The police have been investigating the incident and are thus far treating it as an accident. For more information, see solothurnerzeitung.ch.

Our deepest condolences to the fan’s friends and family.

Suicidal Tendencies’ Mike Muir talks about “13”

Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir recently spoke to Noozhawk.com about the band’s latest album 13, which was released last March and had been in the works for more than ten years. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“One thing for us, we’ve always had a different approach to music than most people. Most people, they do music that they think or they hope people will like. That’s the purpose. Our priority, my personal priority, has always been doing something that I like. Our first record, when it came out, the punk bands said it sucked. The metal ones said it sucked. And we weren’t really concerned about it, because we weren’t looking for their accolades or whatever.

It changed, over time things have changed. People have always put down our records when they come out, and later on somehow they become great records or classic. I think a lot of times so much of music is done for what people think will happen at the time. We’re not concerned with how a record is perceived when it first comes out, but 10 years or 20 years from now, people that aren’t even born now, when they hear it for the first time, what they think. That’s a lot more important.”

13 is Suicidal Tendencies’ first studio album with all-new material since 2000’s Free Your Soul and Save My Mind. It is said to be the first of the three albums they completed back in November of 2011.
