SUICIDAL TENDENCIES – Announce New Drummer

Crossover legends SUICIDAL TENDENCIES have enlisted the immensely talented Greyson Nekrutman as their new drummer. Nekrutman has taken over the role from Brandon Pertzborn.

Speaking yesterday, April 18th, Pertzborn commented of his departure:

“For the past (almost) two years, I’ve been so unbelievably fortunate to play with the almighty Suicidal Tendencies. Musically and personally, it’s been some of the best times of my life. Every single person in the band/crew will be lifelong friends of mine and they have all filled my heart with joy these past couple years.

I’ve learned so much during my time with ST — as a person, and as a musician. As a person, I can’t say enough good things about everyone in this camp — it’s a true family. As a musician, the amount of growth I’ve experienced is priceless. I mean, come on – you can’t be in a band with Mike Muir and not end up being pushed as a musician and come out better than you were before.

The thing about life is, there comes a time when you have to make decisions — hard decisions — and they’re never based on one factor alone; they’re based on many factors: where you are in life, where you’ve been, where you want to go, what’s best for you at the time, what you think the future will look like, and so many other personal factors. And with this, I’ve made the difficult decision to leave Suicidal Tendencies.

Rest assured, the band will still be firing on all cylinders. My boy, Greyson Nekrutman is an absolute monster and is going to KILL it with ST. They all have my full love and support.

As for me, I’ll have more news soon! I ain’t stepping away from drumming anytime soon. In the meantime, I can’t thank everyone involved enough in Suicidal Tendencies for everything. Man, what an honor it’s been. I’ll always look back on this time and smile.”

Greyson himself added:

“It’s an absolute honor to fill such an iconic drum throne. It wouldn’t be possible without my brother Brandon Pertzborn and I can’t thank him enough for passing down the torch. He is an incredible role model and I am so excited for everyone to find out what he has next!”
