“Living For Life”, the new video from California crossover thrash/hardcore punk legends SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Pep Williams and edited by Scott O’Malley for Guerilla Press.
“Living For Life” is taken from SUICIDAL TENDENCIES‘ latest album, “World Gone Mad”, which was released last September. The follow-up to 2013’s “13” disc was the band’s first to feature former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Jeff Pogan, who replaced Nico Santora in May 2016.
In other news, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES has announced plans to release a new EP in the fall. More information will be made available soon.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES frontman Mike Muir recently told Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show that “World Gone Mad” might be the band’s last-ever album. He said: “I think it’s a whole different process now, because previously, it used to be, ‘Okay, time to do another record.’ You go in there, and you record, and you’re going into the studio and you’re paying money. And you’d have everything planned out before you even go into here. Now, the good side of [making] music [is that], I guess, everybody has their own studio and anybody can use Pro Tools, so you can go in at any time, so you don’t sit there and go, ‘We’re going in. We have this amount of time. Blah blah blah.’ So you don’t really think about it. And we found that, over the years, we record a lot of stuff just because we love doing music and having fun and not necessarily love the aspect of putting it out for other people to hear and judge and whatever.”
He continued: “I think that with ‘World Gone Mad’, I think it’s a perfect statement record to fit in with all what else we’ve done in the past and it’s a good way to end it. As I said before, at the same time we recorded an EP, and there’s a possibility we’ll still put that out. But there’s a very good chance that’ll be the last album-album that we do. I know Dave [Lombardo, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES drummer] is… every time we talk, he’s, like, ‘Hey, let’s record something.’ So we’ll always record things. Whether we put it out, I don’t know. We’ve been so busy since this record has come out and we’ve got so much stuff already planned that it’s, like, I can’t even think about even recording another record anyhow. So I guess that’s good.”
Lombardo was more optimistic about SUICIDAL TENDENCIES‘ chances of releasing new music, telling Metal Wani: “I hope [there will be more SUICIDAL TENDENCIES records]. I really hope. I feel like that guy [Mike Muir] has a lot more creativity in him and a lot more energy than to throw in the towel. I feel Mike is on top of his game, and he’s got a great band and great history with this band and I think that we should keep going, and I hope he does. And I’m not gonna stop asking him to record. I’m going to make sure that I keep bugging him: ‘Man, we’ve gotta record. Let’s do some recording. C’mon, let’s record another album. Why not?’ I try to motivate the musicians I’m with because there’s no reason to stop. You’ve gotta keep recording, you’ve gotta keep creating. It’s what we do for a living.”
