Posted by on August 30, 2018

Suicidal Tendencies upcoming album STill Cyco Punk After All These Years is scheduled to arrive next Friday (7th). Not only that, the record is a re-recording and re-imagining of Cyco Miko’s (Mike Muir) 1995 solo effort entitled Lost my Brain! (Once Again). To celebrate the LP’s arrival, the group has taken extra steps by collaborating with Converse for a brand new Converse x Suicidal Tendencies collection, which will be available on the same day as the album’s arrival at Converse.com and select retailers.

The collection includes the following apparel:

Converse x Suicidal Tendencies is a collection of Chuck 70’s and accompanying apparel based on digital and screen-printed graphics in the classic style of Ric Clayton, who designed posters and fliers for the band back in the ’80s. The Chuck 70 HI’s vintage canvas upper features an all-over digital print and the Suicidal Tendencies leather patch on the lateral side. An Ox version, comes in black with an all over digitally-printed lining. The Suicidal Tendencies logo is printed on the tongue and heel. Both the Hi and the Ox pair feature two sets of additional laces including a Suicidal Tendencies printed logo lace.

All apparel, which feature original, screen printed Suicidal Tendencies artwork, include a woven poplin shirt, two pullover hoodies, a pair of sweatpants, a pair of sweatshorts, one long sleeve tee, and two short sleeve tees.

The footwear will retail for a suggested retail price of $90-$95 USD. Apparel will retail for SRP of $35-$80 USD

The company will celebrate this collaboration at Converse’s hometown of Boston the day prior (6th) at Bodega Boston, in a pop-up from 11:00AM to 8:00PM as well as the following day starting at 11:00AM, which will be right before the group kicks off their tour at the House of Blues.

Frontman Mike Muir reflected on his relationship with Converse:

“When I was young, I still remember getting my first pair of ‘Chucks’ for my birthday and how stoked I was to wear them to school the next day. It was almost like a rite of passage, the beautiful thing about them is whatever ‘direction’ you were headed, you could go there with your Chucks.”

He added:

“All these years later, Converse has the same meaning to me. Just as young Mike will never forget putting on his first pair of Chucks, I can’t wait to relive that amazing feeling with the new Converse x Suicidal Tendencies, a massively proud moment for the band, our fans and of course me personally!”
