Suicidal Tendencies set for the silver screen
Essential Music are proud to announce Live at the Olympic Auditorium, Suicidal Tendencies’ first-ever DVD release. The 80 minute DVD features 16 tracks including ST classics ‘Institutionalized’, ‘War Inside My Head’ and ‘Possessed To Skate’ and captures the band in their most natural environment; onstage, uncensored and ready to tear you to shreds. “The band started getting emails from some crazy guy that always said, ‘I know you’ll probably think that I’m crazy but I wanna book ST for a show and I got this idea...’,” explains frontman Mike Muir. “Well, one by one we shot down the unique ideas until one time he emailed and said the Olympic Auditorium was being bought by a Korean Church, shouldn’t it be sent off with a special last gig? The band agreed and then the work began. The promoter – Evel Dick Donato who went on to win Big Brother – tells a bit about the show, making of etc on the intro. Lots of drama, none more than the day before the show when I woke up and couldn’t walk. But the show must go on and the back surgery would have to wait until afterwards! Suicidal performed live at the Olympic Auditorium in front of 4,000 Cycos...but now you can enjoy it in the safety of your living room.”
The band are also now confirmed to headline Hammerfest 2 on the Saturday night at Pontins in Prestatyn for an exclusive UK show, appearing alongside Iced Earth and Skindred. A brand new Suicidal Tendencies album is due for release in September 2010.
