Suicidal Tendencies – Get Your Fight On Album Review
By Adam McCann
Throughout their career, Suicidal Tendencies have worked hard to become one of the seminal crossover bands and even just their name carries a large amount of honour and weight. Still led by the indomitable Mike ‘Cyco’ Muir, Suicidal Tendencies are a band which have managed to stay true to the cause through the good times and bad times.
‘Get Your Fight On!’ is the second EP and latest release from Suicidal Tendencies and was originally planned to be a warm up for the band’s 2016 release ‘World Gone Mad’. However, the material was withheld by the band and the EP now serves as a stop gap between ‘World Gone Mad’ and the upcoming Suicidal Tendencies album ‘Still Cyco Punk After All These Years’, which will be released later in 2018.
As an EP, ‘Get Your Fight On!’ has to be taken at face value, the opening track ‘Nothing to Lose’ and the closing title track are pure Suicidal Tendencies; a huge slab of crossover fun. However, the remainder of the album is made up from lucid jams, collaborations and covers. Although the cover of Iggy Pop’s ‘I Got a Right’ is actually decent, ‘Get Your Fight On!’ clocks in at over 45 minutes with the EP adding instrumental showcases of the title track which are initially interesting, but ultimately pointless.
If ‘Nothing to Lose’ and the title track are anything to go off, then the album released later this year should be highly anticipated. However, ‘Get Your Fight On!’ should be reserved for hardcore fans and collectors only.
