Big news coming your way from the heart of SoCal – the one and only Suicidal Tendencies are gearing up to light the fuse on their 40th anniversary bash! Can you believe it? Four decades since that earth-shattering, self-titled album dropped, and these punk pioneers are still going strong. Get ready to catch 'em live as they kick off a series of electrifying shows on both coasts, setting things in motion come mid-October.
Hold up, rewind to back in the day. We're talking about a time when I was just a 10-year-old kid, yours truly. And let me tell you, that record hit me like a freight train loaded with revelations. Growing up as a Mexican-American punk rock skater – trust me, I know what it's like to stand on the outskirts. While the neighborhood crew was repping cholo style, I was on my own wavelength, repping skateboards and punk patches.
But then, boom! Suicidal Tendencies dropped that game-changing record. It was like they'd reached into my thoughts and pulled out the words I couldn't say. Looking at that album cover, it hit me – these guys were like a mirror, split down the middle yet perched on the edge of something brilliantly wild. It clicked, man. I suddenly knew – it wasn't me who was offbeat, it was the world around me. These dudes, they became my personal anthem, telling me that the path I was carving was damn right.
More details are en route, including the epic lineups for each show – a tantalizing secret that's about to be unveiled. Oh, and heads up – the pre-sale tickets? They're live as of today, August 24th. If you're snoozing, you're losing, my friends. And for the rest of you, set those alarms, 'cause the general ticket sale madness is hitting tomorrow morning.
Fast forward to 2023, and Suicidal Tendencies ain't slowing down. The dream team lineup includes the man himself, founding frontman Mike Muir. Ripping on those guitars, we've got Ben Weinman from the Dillinger Escape Plan, and the ever-astounding Dean Pleasants. Tye Trujillo, straight out of the Trujillo rock dynasty, is grooving it up on bass. And let's not forget the new blood – Greyson Nekrutman, a 21-year-old drumming prodigy who's already breaking the internet.
So there you have it, my music mavens. Suicidal Tendencies is unleashing four decades of punk power, and you're invited to ride the sonic wave. Get ready for a journey that's part nostalgia, part face-melting performance. This is gonna be one for the books – stay tuned and stay amped!
