Thrash punk giants Suicidal Tendencies are unleashing a new album upon the world and they’ve finally let us in on all the details that we’ve been dying to hear!
The brand new album, World Gone Mad, will be released on 30th September 2016. The album will be the first to feature Slayer‘s Dave Lombardo on drums, as well as new members Ra Diaz (bass) and Jeff Pogan (guitar).
Album producer Mike Muir has spoken about what it was like for the band to work with Lombardo in the studio: “It’s interesting, because a lot of people, obviously, associate Dave with the Slayer sound. When you hear how he literally attacks the various ST-yles on this album, you’re instantly blown away at not only how insane of a drummer he is, but also how tremendously diverse a drummer he is. Dave is a true legend, but I believe even a lot of his most hardcore fans will be blown away at what he’s brought to this record. He’s a great guy, amazing to work with and whether it’s live or in the studio, he brings a whole different intensity and rhythmic feel to the band. And he’s definitely got the Cuban thing going on, that Latin flavor, where he gets to do show a little bit more of that style in Suicidal. When you hear it you definitely know it’s Dave, but it definitely takes us to another level. I’ve always been a huge fan, now even more so!”
The album will be with us at the end of the month, and we can’t wait!
