Formed between the sons of Slash, Scott Weiland and Robert Trujillo, the band debuted their first single, Long Awaited last Friday (13 November). Take a listen to it below:
The band stars 20-year-old Noah Weiland on vocal duties, 16-year-old Tye Trujillo on bass and London Hudson – the 18-year-old son of Slash – on drums. Rounding off the lineup is guitarist Niko Tsangaris, who also performs with Hudson in the rock ’n’ roll outfit, Classless Act.
According to Hudson, we can expect to hear more from Suspect208 in the near future as he enthusiastically pointed in an Instagram post: “We got more shit coming soon!”
Slash and Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland first connected in the hard rock supergroup Velvet Revolver. Hudson recalled the first time seeing his father perform with the group in a 2018 interview with the Guns N’ Roses-themed podcast Appetite For Distortion.
“Seeing that many people at the [Velvet Revolver] shows was kind of crazy, and how they all just worshipped [the band],” Hudson said. “Then going on the last GN’R tour and seeing all those people who still like him for much older stuff, is when it really clicked [how famous my dad is].”
Meanwhile, Tye Trujillo, the youngest member of the group, is no stranger to big stages. Back in 2017 – at just 12 years old – he stepped in to play bass on several South American dates with Korn, filling in for Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu.
