The following message was posted at SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' official web site:"Last year was gonna be the year of the Cyco. "We had taken a lot of time to plan all the various projects, CD releases, tours, etc, and how to make them all work together. "We got the studio up and running and started on the INFECTIOUS GROOVES CD. Then SUICIDAL TENDENCIES left for the [Eastpak] Resistance tour in Europe, and [singer] Mike Muir came back and had to have surgery on his back. "Originally when the band got back they were gonna finish the INFECTIOUS GROOVES, then the new SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, leave for a South American Tour in late February/March, then go to Greece, Turkey and Eastern Europe in April, and then start the U.S. part of a world tour in May. "All that had to be cancelled and everything re-evaluated. "After suffering one setback with the back, fortunately all has been going well with Mike and doing shows again is on the horizon. "The most asked question has been about touring. "We'll we hope to do a couple one off So. Cal shows in late April/May and give it a go. "In summer the band will do two weeks of festivals in Europe (dates will be posted after they are confirmed) and if all goes well, then the band will start planning a full U.S. and world tour. "We feel this is the best way to 'test the waters', and make sure all is well and possible at the standards the band demands of itself. "CD releases… "The first release will be the 'Return to Venice' CD, by SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. "The band members are all out of town with family or relatives and will get back and finish the CD the following week. "So far everything has gone better than planned in the studio and we hope to be able to get the DVD done too. "There also are plans for a second SUICIDAL TENDENCIES CD later in the year."
