Okay, we know the tours are coming through thick and thin, but we’re keeping up with the best of the pack and today’s news is going to send shockwaves through the punk scene.
Suicidal Tendencies are celebrating their 40-year legacy and plan to bring their “Still Cyco Punk After All These Years” tour to Australia to keep the festivities going – but, we’re in for a treat with a who’s who lineup hitting the stage down under.
With Mike Muir leading the charge, he’ll be joined by a powerhouse lineup consisting of Ben Weinman (from The Dillinger Escape Plan), Dean Pleasants, Greyson Nekrutman and the one and only Tye Trujillo (OTTTO, ex-Suspect208 and for the noobs, son of Rob) and if that’s not worth the price of admission then you best sit this one out, gramps!
The band’s iconic Skate-Punk-Thrash sound was last heard here in 2018 on the back of Download Festival Australia’s sideshows, so to find the band coming back again, and playing their debut album in full, will be nothing short of historical for all involved. The East Coast run also includes a visit to Adelaide’s Froth and Fury Festival – with an eye-watering lineup already.
We caught up with Tye backstage at Lollapalooza in 2021, where he was playing with his thrash/punk rock outfit OTTTO and brought up the idea of him coming to Australia one day, to which he replied:
“I wanna go so bad… I hear there’s great waves to surf. I’ve heard of Bells Beach, I wanna go there. Hopefully OTTTO can play over there so we can spend some quality time there.’
Someone hook this guy up with a surfboard and get him to the Gold Coast!
