SUICIDAL TENDENCIES has uploaded video footage of the band’s June 5 performance at the FortaRock festival in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Check it out below.

Former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo made his live debut with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES on February 26 at Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He told Metal Wani about ST‘s forthcoming album, for which he recently laid down the drum tracks: “I think it’s very typical and very traditional SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. It’s that style. It’s Mike Muir and he was a very special style in which he writes his music and his lyrics and his structures. And I love it; I love it. It takes me back to how it all started, which was that punk attitude. I’m very happy to be a part of his organization. I feel very welcomed. I feel very much appreciated, and there’s a lot of respect amongst the musicians, and camaraderie. We have a really good time together. We hang out as a band, which is important; I feel it’s very important.”

Lombardo also recalled the first time he discovered SUICIDAL TENDENCIES‘ music. He said: “1982. I remember going to one of their shows in Orange County, which is a city in California, and seeing them play. And then we played together some shows — SLAYER and SUICIDAL. We played San Francisco. We day Day In The Dirt together. There’s pictures online; you can see pictures of SLAYER and SUICIDAL together. Rocky George was the original guitar player for SUICIDAL, [and he] was [late SLAYER guitarist] Jeff Hanneman‘s best friend for a long time. Jeff was very much inspired by SUICIDALSUICIDAL, as well as punk music. So there’s a lot of history there. We’ve known each other a long time.”

Mike Muir told The Bulletin about Lombardo‘s addition to the band: “Dave‘s a legend, you know. It’s a little bit different than other things — people call him the godfather of the double-kick and bass and stuff. He just has an amazing intensity, but besides intensity, he just has a musical mindset that — he totally understands what we’re doing and where we came from when we started, different, but at the same time and stuff. We’ve always kind of done shows together, this and that, been kind of close. He knows where he’s coming from is the right place.”
