When Suicidal Tendencies asked us if we had a slot for them on this year’s bill we said yes in a heartbeat. Almost four decades into their career such hymns as Possessed (to Skate), ‘I Saw Your Mommy’ and ‘Institutionalized’ still sound as fresh and convincing as back in the day. Their eponymous 1983 debut started a revolution by combining hardcore verses with slower thrash choruses. ‘Suicidal Tendencies’ jumpstarted their career but on ‘Join the Army’ (1987) and ‘How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today’ (1988) they gravitated towards a thrashier overall sound although the hardcore roots remained palpable. ‘Pledge Your Allegiance’ is the not just their signature song, it also inspired an entire generation. Now fast-forward to 2016, with the hiring of three new band members including legendary ex-Slayer skinsman Dave Lombardo, and the release of ‘World Gone Mad’. Expect political lyrics, Mike ‘Cyco Miko’ Muir’s inimitable delivery, ripping solos, catchy bass lines and to top it all off, Lombardo’s punk-inspired style that adds a dimension to the music that early fans will definitely appreciate. A new album should hit the shelves mid-2022 so get your fight on and hit the pit! (#GMM22)
