METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo rejoined his former SUICIDAL TENDENCIES bandmates on stage at the Orion Music + More festival on June 23 to perform the INFECTIOUS GROOVES songs “Punk It Up” and “Violent & Funky”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Trujillo was first invited to join SUICIDAL TENDENCIES for a European tour in 1989 supporting East Coast thrashers ANTHRAX. While with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Robert appeared on some of the band’s most successful albums: “Lights, Camera, Action” (1990), “The Art Of Rebellion” (1992) and “Still Cyco After All These Years” (1993). During Trujillo’s years with SUICIDAL, the group’s vocalist, Mike Muir, heard some of Robert’s homemade demos and they collaborated on a funkier, more progressive sound under the name INFECTIOUS GROOVES. They produced a number of albums such as “The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move…” (1991), “Sarsippius’ Ark” (1993) and “Groove Family Cyco” (1994).
