On April 19, Kristyn Clarke of PopCultureMadness.com and ConcertBlogger.com conducted an interview with guitarist Dean Pleasants of the Venice Beach, California thrash/punk band SUICIDAL TENDENCIES prior to the group's concert at Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 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 Muir and Grammy-nominated engineer/mixer Paul Northfield (DREAM THEATER, HOLE, RUSH).

01. Shake It Out
02. Smash It!

09. Slam City
10. Till My Last Breath
11. Living The Fight
12. Life... (Can't Live With It, Can't Live Without It)
13. This World

The "Cyco Style" video was filmed by Pep Williams last May while the band was on tour in Brazil and can be seen below.

The first leg of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' "Slam City" tour started April 11 at the Regency Ballroom in San Franscisco and will end on May 12 in San Diego at House Of Blues.

When asked why he thinks the sound of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES has stood the test of time, Muir told Loudwire in a 2012 interview, "I think for us, when we started we didn't really know what we were doing. We didn't really set out and try to do something for other people. We stood there and did what we liked. We didn't care what other people thought. After we did our first record, one of my good friends came up to me and said, 'Yo, Mike, I got to talk to you. People aren't going to like the album. It's not music. You have an opportunity to make music that people can listen to on the radio.' But I didn't think that was an opportunity because I didn't like what I was hearing on the radio. Our barometer is not what people are going to think or how many records we can sell. We just want to be proud of what we make. That's why it stands the test of time. We did records that we thought were really good."
