American crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies have just announced that they will be releasing their upcoming, as-of-yet untitled thirteenth record this September. The announcement came off of legendary Slayer-turned-Suicidal Tendencies drummer Dave Lombardo’s Twitter.
Prior to this upcoming release, the outfit’s latest release was the Get Your Fight On! EP, which just came out this past March. The EP, which was the group’s second release with Lombardo, was a fantastic ten-song effort.
“We were trying to put the EP out before ‘World Gone Mad’, but then we got Dave Lombardo in the band and everything kind of got switched, and when you put out an EP with the title track of the song that has already been released, it is kind of strange, so the point then you wanted to have originally is still valid,” said frontman Mike Muir about the past EP.
“My dad always said there are two types of fights, one where you fight with your fists and you end up with scars and the ones where you fight with your mind, and those ones cut way deeper, and the battles that are really important in life are the one you fight with your mind,” he elaborated. “So, for us, ‘get your fight on’ is about being way smarter it’s about doing your thing, it’s about knowing who you want to be and about figuring out a path to get to that. It’s about not being the victim, it’s about being victorious, it’s about realizing in a particular moment it may not be where you want to be in life, but that is just an opportunity to fight a little harder, be a little stronger. And sometimes, there is nothing wrong with taking a step back and regrouping and coming up with a better plan. Just quitting is never a good plan. So, for us to get that approach, we don’t do the ‘same old same old.’ Do something different, but do it for the right reason, because you believe it’s good and has some validity and you don’t need confirmation from anybody else.”
As Lombardo says in his Tweet, the band will also be playing Chicago’s Riot Fest 2018 from September 14 to 16 and Louisville’s Louder Than Life festival from September 28 to 30.
