He also talked about touring and playing this year’s Orion Music + More Festival with Infectious Grooves. If you missed Full Metal Jackie’s show, check out her interview with Mike Muir below:
When it comes to crossover thrash, it doesn’t get much more influential than Suicidal Tendencies. Formed back in 1981, the band helped pioneer the genre along with groups like D.R.I. and S.O.D. They have split and reunited a few times, and after being back together for several years now have finally released a new album. '13' is their first studio effort since 2000's 'Free Your Soul...and Save My Mind.'
Suicidal Tendencies are back with their first new album in 13 years and as a result have decided to call the disc '13' (which just so happens to be the name of the new Black Sabbath album, as well). The group recently polished off the forthcoming effort with the band's own Mike Muir co-producing the disc with Paul Northfield. In addition, fans can now get their first taste of new music courtesy of the newly released video for the single 'Cyco Style.'
