Big thanks to all that came out sunday to the Epicenter 2010 in Fontana and braved the heat! Thankfully by 7 P.M. when ST went on it had "cooled" down a bit. The band had a great time and the crowd was filled with both old school, new school, and brand new ST Cycos having a blaST. It's always great to be able to play close to the hometown. Special thanks to Monster, Kroq and Right Arm Entertainment.
Next up Infectious Grooves plays their first ever show in South America at the SWU Festival in Brasil October 9th. Two days later ST plays in Chile. Then the band flys back and jumps on the road touring the U.S. on the "Join the Army/ Deja Vu" tour.
ST will be playing songs from the new CD " No Mercy Fool!/ The Suicidal Army" which features new versions of songs originally on the ST L.P. "Join the Army" and the No Mercy L.P. "Widespread Bloodshed, Love Runs Red". Many of these songs haven't been played live in over 20 years. Of course there will also be the Classic ST songs"Possessed to Skate", " War inside my head" "Suicidal Maniac" etc., as well as the No Mercy songs.
Both albums originally came out in 1987. No Mercy was ST guitarist Mike Clark's band before he joined ST and also featured Mike Muir on Vocals. In 1989 ST re recorded some of the No Mercy tracks for the "Feel like Shit...Deja Vu" E.P. It featured the video for "Waking the Dead", and the E.P. is one of the ST cd's that went Gold. The tour is booked and the band is excited to get back on the road in the states and bring these "old" songs back to life. Waking the Dead ST STyle! We'll have a band interview up soon to talk more about the tour, the cd, and what to expect in 2011.
