About the band

Judging from their name, Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on -- building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk -- before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. Early on, the group (whose original lineup included Muir, guitarist Grant Estes, bassist Louiche Mayorga, and drummer Amery Smith) found it increasingly difficult to book shows, due to rumors of its members' affiliation with local gangs and consistent violence at their performances. The underground buzz regarding Suicidal Tendencies grew too loud for labels to ignore though, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier; issuing Muir and company's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore album up to that point; its best-known track, "Institutionalized," was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV, and was eventually used in the Emilio Estevez cult classic movie Repo Man, as well as in an episode for the hit TV show Miami Vice (for which the group made a cameo appearance).

Suicidal Tendencies proved influential for future speed/thrash metal bands, but despite its early success, the quartet's reputation preceded them, as no other record label was willing to take them on (in addition, Los Angeles banned the group from playing around this time, lasting until the early '90s). Not much was heard from the group for several years afterward (leading many to believe that Suicidal had broken up), but Muir and company eventually found a home with Caroline Records. By this time, half of the original lineup had left; Muir and Mayorga were the only holdovers, while guitarist Rocky George and drummer R.J. Herrera rounded out the group. 1987 saw the release of Suicidal's sophomore release, Join the Army, which spawned another popular skatepunk anthem, "Possessed to Skate," as more and more metal heads began to be spotted in Suicidal's audience. Soon after, Suicidal was finally offered a major-label contract (with Epic), as another lineup change occurred: Mayorga exited the band, while newcomer Bob Heathcote took his spot; and a second guitarist, Mike Clark, was added as well. This Suicidal lineup's first album together, 1988's How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today, showed that their transformation from hardcore to heavy metal was now complete, as did a compilation of two earlier EPs, 1989's Controlled by Hatred/Feel Like Shit...Déjà Vu.

 Suicidal's first release of the new decade, 1990's Lights, Camera, Revolution, was another success; its video for the explosive "You Can't Bring Me Down" received repeated airings on MTV's Headbanger's Ball program, while the album (in addition to the Controlled by Hatred comp) would be certified gold in the U.S. a few years later. The release also signaled the arrival of new bassist Robert Trujillo, whose penchant for funk added a new element to the group's sound. The group tried to broaden their audience even further by opening a string of arena shows for prog-metallists Queensrÿche during the summer of 1991. Their next release, 1992's The Art of Rebellion, proved to be one of Suicidal's most musically experimental albums of their career. Muir and Trujillo also teamed up around this time for a funk metal side project, Infectious Grooves (including several other participants, such as Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins) and issued a debut release, The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move. Upset that the group's classic debut had been out of print for several years by this point, Muir decided to re-record the entire record with Suicidal's '90s lineup under the title of Still Cyco After All These Years.

But after one more release, 1994's Suicidal for Life, Suicidal Tendencies decided to hang it up. A pair of compilations were issued in 1997: a best-of set, Prime Cuts, plus Friends & Family. Muir and Trujillo continued to issue further Infectious Grooves releases (Sarsippius' Ark and Groove Family Cyco), in addition to Muir pursuing a solo career under the alias of Cyco Miko (Lost My Brain Once Again) and Trujillo touring and recording as part of Ozzy Osbourne's solo band (appearing on Osbourne's 2001 release, Down to Earth). Muir formed a new version of Suicidal Tendencies in the late '90s (with Clark being the only other familiar face), resulting in such further studio releases as 1999's Freedumb and 2000's Free Your Soul and Save My Mind. Muir and Trujillo joined forces once more for a fourth Infectious Grooves studio release in 2000, Mas Borracho; while another Cyco Miko release surfaced, Schizophrenic Born Again Problem Child, along with a follow-up up to their earlier compilation, Friends & Family, Vol. 2. After releasing the compilation ‘Year Of The Cycos’ in 2009 that included a selection of all brand new songs from Suicidal Tendencies and side bands Infectious Grooves, NoMercyFool and Cyco Miko, the band released in 2010 the first record in 10 years ‘No Mercy Fool!/The Suicidal Family’ that included re-recordings of classic jems off the ‘Join The Army records’ and infamous recording ‘Widespread Bloodshed’ for Mike Muir and Mike Clark side band No Mercy back in early eighties.

Now the band will be back with their brand new album in 13 years…Story has yet to be written!

Suicidal Records

We started suicidal records up again when st got back together in 1996. This gives us a great vehicle to control how and what is done with the band. We are a very small label, but we hope to continue to learn and grow and put out some very cool and unique music in the future, not just st.
We have a few cycos and cycettes that work with and for us now, and a lot of friends that have volunteered their time to help us out. Hopefully we'll continue to grow and be able to hire more people with the same drive and love of music that we all have.

Right now though we are completely swamped with projects and work to take on any other projects. We are not accepting any more c.d.'s to listen to as we have already received hundreds and it is impossible to listen to them all and tell you "what we think".we're not critics, and your opinion should be more valuable to you than ours. To be honest, st never gave a demo out when we started, and two, we being from the band side of things, would never put someone else's music out if we could not do more than just the minimum things that we would expect for our own c.d.s. Hopefully in the future that will change.
We presently are working out deals to ensure our records can be distributed around the world and be as convenient as possible for you to obtain. This is a difficult process as we are located in the states, so it may take some time before the releases are as readily available as they have been in the past. Please note that we plan on getting the merchandise section up so that everyone can order from us if they have a problem locating our c.d.'s and we're willing to work directly with your favorite store to cut them a deal if they want to buy directly from us.

We also plan on doing a lot of limited editions, and special unique projects. We reserve the right to release more though if it gets silly on ebay, etc.
We want to make cool music for you, not for you to sell to someone else that's a big fan cause it's out of print.
So just so you know, limited editions will probably always be available through us, even if they are no longer in stores.
Bootlegs and unathorized releases are all pieces of shit as far as we are concerned. We wont sign them, we don't wanna see them, and we hope you wont buy them and make some lazy fat fuck money for being a low life thief. I think you get our views on this.

If you would like to put a link to our website from yours you can, but we don't do links to other websites. We get far to many requests and quite frankly it would get pretty silly. Please don't ask any of our bands or band members to sign your guestbook, this obviously is not what we are about. If you can't figure that out you are in the wrong site.

We get lots of emails and appreciate you taking the time and effort to write. Please allow a little time for us to get back to you. You would be surprised by how many emails we get some days and it's quite time consuming trying to answer each and every special request. Oh, and if you send an email telling us to send you a free shirt and c.d. Or we're not cool, don't wait by the mail box. Please remember, we try to be helpful, but we don't kiss ass.
