Earlier this month, Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Jeff Pogan announced his exit from the legendary hardcore band due to "personal reasons." With their latest run of North American tour less than two weeks out, the icons have since announced his replacement: former Dillinger Escape Plan axeman Ben Weinman. His nine-show stint with the band comprises mostly Canadian dates, with a pair U.S. shows: July 14th at the House of Vans in Brooklyn, and July 15th at Ohio's INKcarceration fest. No word yet on whether Weinman will perform any of his signature stunts on the tour — his first extended run of shows since Dillinger's split last December — but the announcement does advise we be on the lookout for "fireworks," so it's safe to say these shows will be insane.
Check out a full list of Weinman-featuring dates below, and be on the lookout for Suicidal Tendencies' new full-length album, due out sometime this September (per the band's legendary drummer Dave Lombardo).
