SUICIDAL TENDENCIES recently gave Loudwire an update on the band’s first set of new material since 2000’s “Free Your Soul and Save My Mind”.
We’ve always had new music in the works. Now it’s actually to the point that we have some that we’re ready to put out. Now is the time to put out a new record and we feel really, really good about it. There will definitely be a record out this year.
On what fans can expect from the new SUICIDAL:
The way we look at it is that next year will be the 30th anniversary of our first record. When we look at a record, we don’t want to have it sound like 2012. We want it to sound awesome 25 years from now, so when a kid who wasn’t even born when we made it listens to it, he’s like, “Damn, that’s a cool record!” I just had a guy from a radio station tell me that some listeners have been requesting the new song ‘Institutionalized.’ The young listeners don’t realize that’s an old song! Something like this [Orion] is good for us, too, because a lot of people who wouldn’t have listened to us will check us out because they know Robert was in the band.
