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.
