Having toured and played shows together all over the world, I’ve been so fortunate to become friends with my musical heroes who have been a part of this band’s incredible history. It’s an absolute honor and privilege to play with Suicidal Tendencies and I can’t wait to start this incredibly exciting new chapter in just one week! See you all in the pit!"
