Former Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg recently took to social media to announce that he has officially joined Suicidal Tendencies.

Weinberg wrote “You Can’t Bring Me Down,” a Suicidal Tendencies song, as the caption to his Instagram post.

“When I think of the culture and community of heavy music that I’ve loved and considered my creative home for 20 years, I think of Suicidal Tendencies: a foundational pillar and source of inspiration ever since I fell in love with punk, metal, and hardcore,” Weinberg said.

He continued, “Having toured and played shows together all over the world, I’ve been so fortunate to become friends with my musical heroes who have been a part of this band’s incredible history. It’s an absolute honor and privilege to play with Suicidal Tendencies, and I can’t wait to start this incredibly exciting new chapter in just one week! See you all in the pit!”.

Weinburg had earlier announced that he would be drumming with the reunited Infectious Grooves, featuring Suicidal Tendencies singer Mike Muir and Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo. However, he has now joined Suicidal Tendencies.

The Suicidal Tendencies band previously featured Greyson Nekrutman, Brandon Pertzborn, and the legendary Dave Lombardo among its recent drummers.

Weinberg will make his debut with Suicidal Tendencies in the band’s upcoming shows in Japan on March 14th and March 16th, in Osaka and Chiba, respectively.
