Metal Sickness conducted an interview with Nico Santora, Eric Moore and Tim Williams of the Venice Beach, California thrash/punk band SUICIDAL TENDENCIES on Aigust 4 at the Xtrem fest in Carmaux, France. You can now watch the chat below."13", the first studio album in 13 years from SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, sold around 3,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 187 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was produced by singer Mike Muir and Grammy-nominated engineer/mixer Paul Northfield (DREAM THEATER, HOLE, RUSH). In a recent interview with Jersey Beat, Muir stated about "13": "We just wanted to have a record which felt like going back through a time machine, that if I was playing straight through at 15, I would go, Whoa!' We didn't want to make a record which sounded old, but one that people not even 20 years old hearing even 20 years from now at would say, 'Wow, that’s a great record.' A lot of people, the first thing that they ask is: 'Well, what style is it? Is it punk, is it metal?' and we’re just, like, 'Why do you want to categorize something so quickly, not care only if it’s good?' That takes time, but I do think that there are a lot of people who are going to love it for the right reasons."
