On September 30th 2016 the legendary punk/thrash icons SUICIDAL TENDENCIES will release the follow up to their latest effort ‘13’. The new record entitled WORLD GONE MAD will be the band’s first studio album featuring the legendary drummer Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Phantomas, GripInc, Dead Cross) and the new members Ra Diaz on Bass and Jeff Pogan on guitar. Dave Lombardo first joined the band on the last US tour (that saw Suicidal Tendencies as main support for Megadeth), is now officially a member of the band and driving force behind the new release.
WORLD GONE MAD is 11 songs that are Cyco and brutal with a true honesty that Suicidal Cycos expect (the CD starts off with the instantly memorable “ Clap like Ozzy”, which deals with life and death and what we make of it). Never afraid to push the boundaries, this album also features those unique elements that Suicidal has always put in their studio releases throughout their almost 35 years career.
Produced by Mike Muir with help of legendary producer Paul Northfield (Rush, Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Ozzy Osbourne, Hole, Marilyn Manson) who also engineered and mixed the record. Additional engineering came from new guitar player Jeff Pogan.
Ra Diaz from Chile is a great story, the bass player who practiced and practiced to one day be in his favorite band and follow the legendary bassists Robert Trujillo, Josh Paul and Steve ‘Thundercat’ Bruner. His friends said he was crazy, but his family believed in him as he first left to Mexico, then America and then finally getting the call earlier this year. Said Diaz, "I'm extremely honored to be a part of this band's history and legacy. Listening to ST influenced me in so many ways and knowing that I might be able to do the same thing for others with this album is truly a dream come true."

Mike Muir – Vocals
