SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' video for the band's new single, "Come Alive", can be viewed below.
In a recent interview with the Great Falls Tribune, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES frontman Mike Muir stated about the song's lyrical content, "There's a lot of people ... their heart's beating and they've got brain waves, but they're not livin.' It's about taking control and standing up and realizing that you're always gonna have an excuse to sit back and wait and see what happens. You've gotta take control. I've gotta take control. I don't want someone else to have that control, and I'll do my best to fight to keep them from having it."
"Come Alive" will be included on "Year Of The Cycos", the first album from the SUICIDAL crew featuring all-new tracks from the "cycos." The CD is only available from ST's "Suicyco Street Team" web site.
Drummer Dave Hildago Jr. played his last show with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES in September at the We The People festival in Los Angeles. His full-time replacement is Eric Moore, who previously played with the long-running SUICIDAL side project INFECTIOUS GROOVES. According to the group, "Eric has an unbelievable mixture of power and finesse and the band is extra excited about the upcoming tours."
A brand new SUICIDAL TENDENCIES studio album is expected later in the year.
