SUICIDAL TENDENCIES frontman Mike Muir is absolutely thrilled for former bandmate Robert Trujillo, who has just landed the bassist gig in METALLICA.

"Congratulations Robert!" Muir writes on the band's official web site. "From the all of us, a quick congratulations to Robert Trujillo for getting the bass player gig in METALLICA. We're sure he'll be a great addition for them and wish him and METALLICA best of luck... although they certainly don't need it."

With regards to SUICIDAL's current and upcoming touring/recording activities, Mike had the following to say:

"First, no new summer tour dates confirmed yet...we're patiently waiting too.
Second, all are best go out to the Pleasants' family, who had another recent death in the family. Dean is now in Texas, and will be back later this week. Third, the recording has gone better than expected, although we've been slowed down by some untimely surfing accidents, and personal responsibilities that have required several of the members to leave town for various reasons.

"We will probably continue to record again next month and it looks very promising that we will get a new CD out this year. In the meantime, we have been meeting with several people and doing some reorganization with the prospect of full on new CD and tour. We've also been working with some very exciting people and hope to have some of there music available for you all to sample real soon.

"Lastly, we are in the process of making a 'Friends And Family 3' CD. We'll have more info on the bands, songs, etc at the beginning of next month.
