Southern California crossover thrash/hardcore punk/skate punk legends Suicidal Tendencies have announced their Download Festival sideshows.
Formed in Venice, California, during the early ’80s, the group’s leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on — building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk — before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. Suicidal Tendencies have continuously led the charge in the skate punk / thrash metal movement for almost 3 decades.
With a reputation for their live shows, anyone who has caught the band will no doubt be ready for another round, and those who haven’t… start warming up now.
Folks in Coolangatta, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth are treated to headline sets, while Melbourne folk can catch them at Download Festival. Tickets for the festival are on sale now, and these headline shows go on sale 9am local time this Wednesday 20th December.
