On September 30 the legendary punk/thrash icons SUICIDAL TENDENCIES will release the follow up to their latest effort ‘13’. The new record entitled WORLD GONE MAD will be the band’s first studio album featuring the legendary drummer Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Phantomas, GripInc, Dead Cross) and the new members Ra Diaz on Bass and Jeff Pogan on guitar.

Dave Lombardo first joined the band on the last US tour (that saw Suicidal Tendencies as main support for Megadeth), is now officially a member of the band and driving force behind the new release.
WORLD GONE MAD is 11 songs that are Cyco and brutal with a true honesty that Suicidal Cycos expect (the CD starts off with the instantly memorable “ Clap like Ozzy”, which deals with life and death and what we make of it).

Never afraid to push the boundaries, this album also features those unique elements that Suicidal has always put in their studio releases throughout their almost 35 years career. Produced by Mike Muir with help of legendary producer Paul Northfield (Rush, Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Ozzy Osbourne, Hole, Marilyn Manson) who also engineered and mixed the record. Additional engineering came from new guitar player Jeff Pogan.

Pre orders of World Gone Mad are available NOW via Nerve Gas

Suicidal Tendencies Album


On first album recorded with Dave Lombardo, Mike Muir states:

“It’s interesting, because a lot of people, obviously, associate Dave with the Slayer sound.”
“When you hear how he literally attacks the various STyles on this album, you’re instantly blown away at not only how insane of a drummer he is, but also how tremendously diverse a drummer he is.
Dave is a true legend, but I believe even a lot of his most hard core fans will be blown away at what he’s brought to this record.”

Muir continues, “He’s a great guy, amazing to work with and whether it’s live or in the studio, he brings a whole different intensity and rhythmic feel to the band. And he’s definitely got the Cuban thing going on, that Latin flavor, where he gets to do show a little bit more of that style in Suicidal. When you hear it you definitely know it’s Dave, but it definitely takes us to another level. I’ve always been a huge fan, now even more so!”

On having Dave Lombardo as permanent member of the band, Mike Muir says:
“Dave is very serious. I can’t fake what I do; he can’t fake what he does. He’s up there and just doing his thing. And it sounds so powerful, and yet it’s so fun. I mean, that’s one of the things with touring with him, it’s just refreshing that it’s, like, ‘Bam!’ We just do it, but it definitely does add such intensity. I mean, going years back, I’ve always known Dave and been a huge fan and I’ve always kind of said ‘Wow! If we had someone like Dave playing with us’…You know, you get those little things sometimes in your head, never expecting it to happen. And now we actually do.”
