Leading up to June 23-24, we are teaming up with local and national music bloggers to feature artists on the 2012 Orion Music + More Line-up. This week, we teamed up with Loudwire to showcase Suicidal Tendencies.
The upcoming Orion Music + More festival features an eclectic mix of music acts, and one of those bands is none other than hardcore punk-thrash veterans Suicidal Tendencies.
After 30 years, Suicidal Tendencies are still going strong with their current lineup of frontman Mike Muir (aka Cyco Miko), rhythm guitarist Mike Clark, lead guitarist Dean Pleasants, bassist Stephen ‘Thundercat’ Bruner and drummer Eric Moore.
In our recent interview with Cyco Miko, he talked about the band’s longevity. “[We have a] certain standard [for ourselves] and I think that’s why we’re able to be here almost 30 years later, where if we just did things that other people thought were good opportunities or smart, I wouldn’t be here now.” Check out Loudwire’s full interview with Cyko Miko here.
You can be assured that Suicidal Tendencies are genuinely pumped to be playing the Orion Festival, which is headlined and curated by Metallica. Suicidal Tendencies will share the Damage Inc. stage with Sepultura, Kyng, Torche, Red Fang and others. The Orion Music + More festival is set to rock Atlantic City, N.J., on June 23 & 24.
