Check out this new video and let the frenzied antics of Suicidal Tendencies pump some adrenaline into you!
I’ve been following the band Suicidal Tendencies since 1987’s Join the Army. Considered a ‘grandfather’ of the ‘Crossover Thrash Movement’ this was the album that really bridged the gap between hardcore punk and thrash metal.
Suicidal followed this effort with three commercially successful offerings: How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today (1988), Controlled by Hatred/Feel Like Shit…Déjà Vu (1989) and Lights…Camera…Revolution! (1990). Shortly after, I lost touch with the band.
Perhaps it was the arrival of death metal but the well-worn formula of Suicidal Tendencies started to sound stale. It didn’t help that the band went through numerous line-up changes and re-recorded previously released material.
I was oblivious to the multiple comebacks and self-induced hiatus. In 2016, the group was again on my radar when Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Grip Inc.) joined the fold. A match made in metal heaven, this appeared to be the perfect landing spot for the famed drummer.
A successful album (World Gone Mad – 2016) and an EP (Get Your Fight On! – 2018) put Suicidal Tendencies back on the map. Another full-length studio effort was just unveiled last September, Still Psycho Punk After All These Years, is now available via Suicidal Records.
A new music video, “All Kinda Crazy” has been released to hype the effort. A performance offering that capitalizes on the live energy of the band. It’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement of a concert setting. Watching people pumping their fists, slam dance and crowd surf is stimulating. It makes me want to attend a Suicidal show right now!
