Metallica Bassist Robert Trujillo’s 15-Year-Old Son Performs With Suicidal Tendencies At “SoCal Hoedown”

On October 5, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo’s 15-year-old song Tye Trujillo took the stage at the SoCal Hoedown in San Pedro, California to play bass for his dad’s old band Suicidal Tendencies. He was filling in for Ra Diaz, who had to miss the set. You can see footage of that below. Tye previously played bass for Korn on their 2017 South American tour.

Wow… It's been 30 years since Robert Trujillo @robtrujillo joined ST and did his firST shows with the band in Europe on tour with Anthrax. . That firST show Robert came out like a beaST, going wild on ST all while slapping and bashing his bass with precision and a purpose. After the show, they were all "where did you find this guy?". . An amazing bass player, incredible person, and of course also co-founder of Infectious Grooves, that was the STart of a lot of great shows, moments, memories and helping take ST to another level! . Flash forward to laST Saturday night in San Pedro at the SoCal Hoedown. HiSTory repeats itself as a young Tye Trujillo @tyetru STeps on STage and bashed around it like a true Cyco! 🙂 . Huge thanks to Tye for filling in for Ra @ra_diaz for this one show. For showing what a bad ass he already is on bass, and at juST 15 years old, has already accomplished a lot, but huge things are STill coming his way. His youthful enthusiasm was contagious, his bass skills undeniable. . JuST like Robert and Chloe Trujillo @chloetrujillo , we were all super proud of him and an absolute blaST to be able to share a STage with him. . On a side note, we warned him, over and over "watch out for Ben, watch out for Ben!". So firST song, "You can't bring me down", and guess what… It's Cyco that knocks him over! . Well as we always say, you get knocked down in life, you get back up… And not only did Tye get back up… But with a smile and didn't miss a beat or a STep! There's a lesson there… Be like Tye! . Again huge thanks to the Trujillo family and all people that came out to the feSTival to support us. . STAY CYCO!

Mike Muir commented:

“When I was young, I still remember getting my first pair of ‘Chucks’ for my birthday and how stoked I was to wear them to school the next day. It was almost like a rite of passage, the beautiful thing about them is whatever ‘direction’ you were headed, you could go there with your Chucks.”

“All these years later, Converse has the same meaning to me. Just as young Mike will never forget putting on his first pair of Chucks, I can’t wait to relive that amazing feeling with the new Converse x Suicidal Tendencies, a massively proud moment for the band, our fans and of course me personally!”

A press release added:

“Converse x Suicidal Tendencies is a collection of Chuck 70’s and accompanying apparel based on digital and screen-printed graphics in the classic style of Ric Clayton, who designed posters and fliers for the band back in the ’80s.

An Ox version, comes in black with an all over digitally-printed lining. The SUICIDAL TENDENCIES logo is printed on the tongue and heel.

Suicidal Tendencies Share “It’s Always Something” From “STill Cyco Punk After All These Years”

Suicidal Tendencies have shared “It’s Always Something” from their upcoming album “STill Cyco Punk After All These Years” (out September 7). This song, like a number of songs on the effort, is a reworked version of a track that appeared on Mike “Cyco Miko” Muir’s 1996 solo album “Lost My Brain! (Once Again).” The below clip also shows Alan Pirie a.k.a. Samurai Guinea Pig creating the artwork for the effort at the Nuthouse STudio.

Suicidal Tendencies Stream “F.U.B.A.R.” From “STill Cyco Punk After All These Years”

Suicidal Tendencies are streaming “F.U.B.A.R.” from their upcoming album “STill Cyco Punk After All These Years” (out September 7). This song, like a number of songs on the effort, is a reworked version of a track that appeared on Mike “Cyco Miko” Muir’s 1996 solo album “Lost My Brain! (Once Again).”

On another note, Muir has since commented on the album:

“Although the 13 years I was in Suicidal at the time, I did things I never dreamed I’d have the chance to, or could happen, there were still way too many times that were extremely difficult to handle. Basically, ‘Love Music, don’t Like the other stuff’. Anyhow, remembering that original love for music made me want to do a Punk STyle record and at the time I didn’t feel it was, could or should be an ST album.”

He continued:

“I felt it not only could be, but it should be an ST album. Not retro but taking it 25 years forward and make it a modern Cyco Punk record. Extremely dangerous after so many years, but damn, I love these songs and I feel them so much. Perhaps surprisingly more now than when I was 30.

The music hits me hard and the lyrics hit me harder. Life takes you places sometimes you don’t want to be. I know that more than I would like to admit…but it led me here, right now and I’m so proud to be here! And the irony is a “non-Suicidal” album, has just made me more Suicidal than ever.”
