Volcom X Suicidal Tendencies Collab plus Mike Muir Interview
Volcom Japan releases collaboration with Suicidal Tendencies and ST's Mike Muir talks music, motivation, Dave Lombardo, and what’s next for the band, in this exclusive interview.
Words by Michael Sieben (the artist behind the collab)
"One of the first Thrasher Magazines I owned was the May 1987 issue with Mike Muir on the cover and his interview inside. Thrasher was my introduction to skateboarding and punk rock, and this issue, in particular, was eye opening. The fact that there wasn't a skater on the cover, hammered home the concept that skateboarding was much bigger than just the act of rolling itself as the music and art had just as much importance to the subculture. I was sold. Suicidal Tendencies was also one of the first bands I listened to that had nothing to do with my parents' musical tastes or influence. It was something I discovered on my own and they'll always have a very special place in my heart."

"Getting the opportunity to work with Mike Muir and Volcom Japan on these designs is literally a childhood dream come true. I made a Suicidal Tendencies Sharpie t-shirt at age 12, and now at age 43, getting to see my artwork on official ST merchandise — I'm honestly blown away. And, yeah, I'm still possessed to skate. Thanks, ST!"
The Volcom x Suicidal Tendencies Collection is exclusive to Japan only.
Mike and Suicidal Tendencies were over in Japan in November for Volcom Entertainment Live, a music festival which featured tons of live music (including ST), skate ramps, and more, and FLJ Magazine sat down with Mike to ask him a few questions. See below for the interview and some photos from the festival.
