Infectious Grooves

Infectious Grooves is a funk metal band led by Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir in 1990. It also features former Excel guitarist Adam Siegel, ex-Suicidal Tendencies bassist Robert Trujillo (now in Metallica), and ex-Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. Though Muir’s sense of humor was often obvious with Suicidal Tendencies, they often brought out a goofier type of humor: their albums contain comedy skits by a reptilian lover named Aladdin Sarsippius Sulemenagic Jackson the third.

The band have been on hiatus between the release of their fourth album, 2000’s Mas Borracho and 2007, having not written new material, toured or recorded, but the band’s personnel have kept busy with other projects. 2008 sees the return of the band on tour with a one-month tour across Europe in April featuring Steve Brunner on bass, Eric Moore on drums, Dean Pleasants and Tim Stewart on guitars. As stated by Muir in 2006 on Suicidal Tendencies’ official website, Infectious Grooves had been working on new material.
