According to SUICIDAL TENDENCIES drummer Dave Lombardo, the band will release a new full-length album in September.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' latest release was the "Get Your Fight On!" EP, which came out in March. It was the group's second release with Lombardo, Ra Diaz on bass and Jeff Pogan on guitar. The ten-song effort included new tracks, the first-ever cover song from the band — of the classic Iggy Pop song "I Got A Right" — and artwork by artist Mike Strachan.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES singer Mike Muir told SCENEzine about "Get Your Fight On!": "We were trying to put the EP out before 'World Gone Mad', but then we got Dave Lombardo in the band and everything kind of got switched, and when you put out an EP with the title track of the song that has already been released, it is kind of strange, so the point then you wanted to have originally is still valid.
"The point is, I think, a lot of times, especially nowadays, when people don't want to communicate, they just want to yell and they don't want to hear what anyone else has to say," he continued. "They just want to hear what they want to hear and they are the type of people whose basis of strength is based on numbers.
"My dad always said there are two types of fights, one where you fight with your fists and you end up with scars and the ones where you fight with your mind, and those ones cut way deeper, and the battles that are really important in life are the one you fight with your mind. So, for us, 'get your fight on' is about being way smarter it's about doing your thing, it's about knowing who you want to be and about figuring out a path to get to that. It's about not being the victim, it's about being victorious, it's about realizing in a particular moment it may not be where you want to be in life, but that is just an opportunity to fight a little harder, be a little stronger. And sometimes, there is nothing wrong with taking a step back and regrouping and coming up with a better plan. Just quitting is never a good plan. So, for us to get that approach, we don't do the 'same old same old.' Do something different, but do it for the right reason, because you believe it's good and has some validity and you don't need confirmation from anybody else."
