Suicidal Tendencies Team Up With Converse For New Merch Line

Suicidal Tendencies have collaborated with Converse on a new line of shoes and apparel. It will officially launch on September 7, the same day the band’s new album “STill Cyco Punk After All These Years” is set to be released. The merch will be available via Converse.com and select retailers. There will also be a pop-up store at Bodega Boston on September 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on September 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., before the band’s show at the House of Blues in Boston.

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. The Chuck 70 HI’s vintage canvas upper features an all-over digital print and the SUICIDAL TENDENCIES leather patch on the lateral side. An Ox version, comes in black with an all over digitally-printed lining. The SUICIDAL TENDENCIES logo is printed on the tongue and heel. Both the Hi and the Ox pair feature two sets of additional laces including a SUICIDAL TENDENCIES printed logo lace.

All apparel, which feature original, screen printed SUICIDAL TENDENCIES artwork, include a woven poplin shirt, two pull over hoodies, a pair of sweatpants, a pair of sweatshorts, one long sleeve tee, and two short sleeve tees.

The footwear will retail for a suggested retail price of $90-$95 USD. Apparel will retail for SRP of $35-$80 USD.”

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.”

The cover art and track listing for the effort were revealed yesterday and can be found HERE.
