Suicidal Tendencies Singer Speaks On Band's Legacy

Suicidal Tendencies vocalist Mike Muir recently spoke to FreeTimes.com about a number of things ranging from the allegations of gang involvement to the legacy of Suicidal Tendencies. Some excerpts from the chat are below:

Freetimes.com: The rumor mill said the band was gang-affiliated. Were any of you?
Muir: "The world is a gang. There's certain words people use [to call attention and stigmatize], like 'Oh, oh, oh!' Anybody that grew up in Venice, if you didn't know somebody that was in a gang, you didn't know anybody. It has nothing to do with anything."

Freetimes.com: You're the only original member. What does it say about the band?
Muir: "That's the way it is. It doesn't mean anything to me. A lot of the time, I say I wish I could get somebody to take my place. I say that in a funny way, but in a real way. A long time ago, I used to say I wish I could just be in the audience and check it out."

Freetimes.com: What does Suicidal Tendencies represent to you in 2008?
Muir: "I think it would be a success if people hear it and think, 'You've got metal, you've got punk, you've got all this stuff - but there's something else. There's another way to do it.' If there's some 14-year-old kid, I don't want him just trying to play like Suicidal. I want him to sit there and go, 'You know what? We don't have to do what everybody else is doing. How can we do something completely different?' That's what we've tried to do with each of our records. People should hear it the first time and go, 'Whoa, that's not what I expected.'"

Suicidal Tendencies Announces New Drummer

Crossover thrash icons Suicidal Tendencies has posted the following message online:

"ST would like to give a big thanks to Dave Hildago Jr. Dave's last show was the 'We The People' festival last month. Dave's a good friend and always was there when the band needed him. Everyone wishes him and his family all the best, and much success in his future projects. We're also very excited to let those of you that don't know yet, that Eric Moore will be taking over the ST drums full time. Those that saw IG on tour earlier this year got to get a taste of insane drum skillz! Eric has an unbelievable mixture of power and finesse and the band is extra excited about the upcoming tours. It's a great chance to show off Eric and preview some new tracks. Mike Clark (guitar) will do a quick update/ interview for the website next week and fill you in on the band, the tour, recording, etc. Lastly, thanx to all the Cycos for their support!"

P.O.D. Guitarist Speaks On Mike Muir

Mitchell Peters of Billboard.com reports that P.O.D.'s new album, "When Angels & Serpents Dance" (due April 8 via INO/Columbia), features guest appearances from the MARLEY SISTERS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES singer Mike Muir and HELMET guitarist Page Hamilton. The song "Kaliforn-Eye-A", which features vocals from Muir, allowed P.O.D. to collaborate with an "iconic punk rock figure that played an influence on us as a band," says guitarist Marcos Curiel, who rejoined the band in 2006. "It's a more upbeat song about where we came from."

Curiel exited P.O.D. following 2001's "Satellite" (Atlantic), which has moved 3.2 million units in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "We were at the height of our career and all of a sudden this big mess happened," the guitarist says, declining to give specifics about leaving the band. "It was just business."

Ministry To Be Joined By Megadeth Members

MINISTRY mastermind and industrial metal pioneer Al Jourgensen has revealed the band's lineup for its final tour, which is expected to kick off early next year. It is as follows:

Al Jourgensen - Vocals
Jimmy DeGrasso (MEGADETH, Y&T, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) - Drums
David Ellefson (MEGADETH, F5, TEMPLE OF BRUTALITY) - Bass
Tommy Victor (PRONG) - Guitar
Sin Quirin (THE REVOLTING COCKS) - Guitar
John Bechdel (FEAR FACTORY, KILLING JOKE) - Keyboards

In a recent interview with Germany's Rock Hard magazine, Jourgensen said, "We're tourng pretty extensively – we're doing like the CHER farewell tour. [Laughs] It's gonna be, like, 20 weeks of mayhem around the world, and then we're done."

After 27 years, 11 studio albums, four Grammy nominations, and plenty of pain, MINISTRY will release its final album, "The Last Sucker", on September 18. This will give Jourgensen plenty of time to devote himself to expanding his borderland compound, 13th Planet Records.

"I've got a lot of side-projects and new projects I want to focus on," explained Jourgensen. "We have our our own label, 13th Planet Records, we're building, and I want to sign, produce and collaborate with other artists. Being in the studio writing, recording and collaborating is my favorite part of this snake-oil industry. I'd rather be behind the console than behind the mic. Plus, I kinda like the synchronicity of Dubya and MINISTRY riding off into the sunset hand in hand."

"The Last Sucker" is the third in an unrelenting and uber-critical trilogy aimed at exposing the foils, failures and fabrications perpetrated by the George W. Bush administration. The CD, which follows 2004's "Houses of the Molé" and last year's "Rio Grande Blood", is the final nail in the Dubya coffin. The album was produced and recorded by Jourgensen himself at his 13th Planet compound in El Paso, TX, with musicians Thomas Victor (PRONG) on guitars, Paul Raven (KILLING JOKE, PRONG) on bass and guitarist Sin Quirin (THE REVOLTING COCKS). In addition, Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY) makes a vocal appearance on "Die In A Crash", as well as the album's final two songs, "End of Days" parts One and Two.

"The Last Sucker" track listing:

01. Let's Go
02. Watch Yourself
03. Life Is Good
04. The Dick Song
05. The Last Sucker
06. No Glory
07. Death & Destruction
08. Roadhouse Blues
09. Die In a Crash
10. End of Days (Pt. 1)
11. End of Days (Pt. 2)

Six Announce New Album w/ Guests From Static-X

Huntington Beach, CA's SiX have announced the release of their new album “Between The War and the Warning.” The album, which features guest appearances by Mike Clark from Suicidal Tendencies and bassist Tony Campos from Static-X, will be released independently through the group’s own 1605 Records.

"Tony and Mike were a blessing to this project. After rocking out to one of our rough demos he got from a mutual friend, Mike wanted to meet us. That meeting turned into partying in Hermosa Beach over Tecates and Tequilla. By the end of the night he and his homie destroyed his coffee table, moshing to 'The Day I Died.' He came into the studio and just man-handled the guitar. I've never seen a guy rip like that so effortlessly," says frontman Lauren Boquette. "Tony and I go way back to my days in Drown. We knew he was a monster on the bass and when it came time to track bass parts, I sent him 'The Day I Died' and 'Warning' knowing they would be right up his alley. He came in and within 2 hours the bass lines were on fire, he killed it." More...
