Suicidal Tendencies (USA)

One of the deepest rooted American crossover thrash bands – Suicidal Tendencies — caught on stage in New Jersey — during 2019’s “The Bash” Music & Craft Beer Festival — held at Old Bridge Township.

First formed in Venice California by lead vocalist Mike Muir (who is the only remaining original member of the band), Suicidal Tendencies has stood the test of time despite a long list of incoming and outgoing artists.

The aggressive band which has maintained a close identification with the motif of the LA area’s gang scene — dating way back to the early 1980’s — is now comprised of Mike “Cyco Miko” Muir – lead vocals, Dean Pleasants – lead guitar & backing vocals, Dave Lombardo – drums, Ra Díaz – bass & backing vocals, and Ben Weinman – rhythm guitar.

While Mike usually is all about “all I wanted was a Pepsi (LOL!)” — it was all about the beer this time out during this cool festival which went down within the confines of what was formally Old Bridge Township Raceway Park – a drag strip which hosted NHRA national events for many seasons.
