Prepare to have your mind Institutionalized Australia. The one and only SuicidalTendencies will be bringing their ‘Still Cyco Punk After All These Years’ tour to our shores for the 40th Anniversary of their landmark, self titled debut. 1983’s SuicidalTendencies!
Hailing from the sun-soaked streets of Venice, California, ST was the brainchild of the unstoppable force known as Mike Muir, younger brother of original Z-Boy and Dogtown Skateboard founder Jim Muir.
Picture this: it’s the early 80’s and Muir takes the essence of skating, surfing, and the Dogtown scene and infuses it with a new style of hardcore that forever changed the punk and metal landscape. SuicidalTendencies hit the stage with a uniqueness that ignited a wild frenzy among crowds. Flipped up hats, hand-drawn shirts, and bandanas became their signature and was instantly recognisable and defiant. They caused such a shitstorm that they were even banned from tearing up stages in their own backyard of L.A!
But did that stop ST? Absolutely not and they went on to take the world by storm. Blending punk, metal, and hardcore into something else: Skate-Punk-Thrash. They shattered musical boundaries and left a trail of awe-inspiring chaos in their wake. With their aggressive sound and unapologetic attitude, they became favourites among the extreme sports community, pumping adrenaline into the veins of every skateboarder, surfer, and thrill-seeker out there.
The rest is history..
SuicidalTendencies has evolved like a raging beast over the past four decades. With multiple Gold records and Grammy nominations under their belt, they have left an indelible mark on heavy music the world over. Their legacy has even earned them a prestigious spot in the Skateboard Hall of Fame, forever cementing their impact on both music and culture. And let’s not forget the incredible talent that has graced their ranks over the years, with the likes of Robert Trujillo, Thundercat, Josh Freese, and Brooks Wackerman contributing their exceptional skills to the Suicidal family.
Now, in celebration of their self-titled debut album’s 40th anniversary, SuicidalTendencies are returning to Australia with a vengeance!
Prepare to be blown away as Mike Muir leads the charge, joined by the powerhouse lineup of Ben Weinman (from the legendary Dillinger Escape Plan), Dean Pleasants, Tye Trujillo (son of the one and only Robert Trujillo), and Greyson Nekrutman.
They’re revved up and armed with the same explosive energy and unrelenting aggression that made them an unstoppable force back in ’83.
Brace yourselves because SuicidalTendencies is coming for you,
and if you miss out, You’ll Be Sorry.
