Suicidal Tendencies announces a tour in Brazil with a free show in Sao Paulo

American band Suicidal Tendencies confirm five concert dates in Brazil, including a special performance at Esquenta Rockfun Fest

American band Suicidal Tendencies will do a mini concert tour in Brazil in July, bringing the “We Are Family Tour” to the country. The California group will tour five cities in July, including a free show in Sao Paulo during the Esquenta Rockfun Fest. The tour will begin in Rio de Janeiro on July 12, followed by performances in Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Porto Alegre and Belo Horizonte.

Suicidal Tendencies have performed several tours throughout Brazil since their first visit in 1994. In their most recent tour, in 2019, they also performed a free show, held at Parque da Juventude in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo. The band is known as a pioneer of Californian hardcore and has a solid fan base in Brazil.

News in the band’s lineup

This will be Suicidal Tendencies’ tenth visit to Brazil. The band has a long history of memorable performances in the country, but the July shows will mark the first time the band’s new lineup will play for Brazilian audiences, promising a repertoire that mixes classics and new songs.

The current lineup of Suicidal Tendencies has a generational transition. In addition to founder Mike Muir and guitarist Dean Pleasants, the band now includes Ben Weinman on guitar and Tye Trujillo, son of Robert Trujillo, formerly of Suicidal and currently in Metallica, on bass. Completing the lineup is Jay Weinberg, former Slipknot drummer, who reinforces the rhythm section.

Solidarity actions

Taking advantage of their time in Brazil, Suicidal Tendencies will not only play for their fans but also engage in solidarity actions. At the São Paulo festival, for example, there will be a campaign to collect donations for the victims of the Rio Grande do Sul floods.

The Esquenta Rockfun Fest will take place at the Tietê Sports Center in São Paulo and will also feature several national bands, such as Oitão, Korzus and Inocentes. The event will take place on July 13th and tickets can be collected for free through the Sympla platform starting from Monday (5/13). Festival organizers encourage participants to donate water, non-perishable food and clothing to help flood victims in Rio Grande do Sul.
