New Suicidal Tendencies In The Works

LA thrash/punk kings Suicidal Tendencies plan on releasing a new album sometime in 2006. It will be their first in 6 years. I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. This band's first album, circa 1983, is brilliant in my opinion. After that they slowly went from a thrash-punk style to straight thrash. They decided to aspire more towards a Slayer sound. The problem is they never really pulled it off.

In the late'90s they seemed to realize they were a better punk band then metal band and switched back to their roots. It wasn't great but it was better the most of the stuff they did prior. So what will this one be? I'm thinking more punk, which I look forward to - if it's metal then I'll pass.

Suicidal Tendencies were one of my favorites when I was a kid. I was fascinated by the whole latin street gang playing punk aspect. The early style they had was pretty original at the time and helped pave the way for an entire genre. The first band I ever saw was ST when they opened for Metallica and Danzig. I was about 12 and a big fat biker guy tried to pass me a joint.

(Hey, Look what I found)

The ST website is pretty damn good - tons of cool things to check out. Anyway here are a few tunes from the SuiCyko's.

Oh and by the way, I've noticed like 18 year old kids rockin' the ST style hat with the brim flipped up on the streets of NYC lately. I even see them with "Suicidal" written underneath.

I will say this - those hats are badass, but I don't know if they should be worn 20+ years after the fact.

It's sorta like the deadheads when I was in school - you're not fucking hippies... just stop it, please.
