Suspect208 — the younger rock band that includes the sons of Weapons N’ Roses’ Slash and Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, and for a quick time, the son of late Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland — have known as it quits. The group’s short-lived trip was a tumultuous one which rivaled a few of the trials and tribulations of their well-known dads’ bands.
With a lineup of Noah Weiland on vocals, London Hudson (Slash’s son) on drums, Tye Trujillo on bass, and Niko Tsangaris on guitar, Suspect208 obtained off to a promising begin. They released their debut single, the hard-rocking “Lengthy Awaited”, in November, and it was met with a constructive response, incomes greater than 1,000,000 hits on YouTube.

Weiland was changed by singer Cody Houston, and the band launched two extra singles, “Nicotine” and the Van Halen-inspired “You Got It”. However seven months after the discharge of their debut single, the band has damaged up.
As Tsangaris advised Wall of Sound, Houston not too long ago walked away from the band to focus on being a father, as he’s anticipating a baby together with his girlfriend, and Trujillo had quietly left the group, as properly. With each members out, Tsangaris and Hudson determined to finish Suspect208 and deal with a brand new undertaking, S8NT ELEKTRIC.
“We determined to finish it as a result of Tye left and Cody left to be a dad and we didn’t wish to preserve dividing up our fan base by getting new individuals,” revealed Tsangaris. “We’re beginning a clear slate with @s8ntelektric and we’re all very enthusiastic about it. There’s some wonderful musicians in that band and we’re all very pushed!”
As to what to anticipate from S8NT ELEKTRIC, Tsangaris stated, “We’re most likely going to have 4 singles out by September. We’ve been writing loads collectively and it’s been going nice! We have now a tune set to launch for the top of every month.”
S8NT ELEKTRIC have already booked a gig at Napa Valley’s Bottle Rock festival, the place London’s dad Slash will probably be enjoying a headlining set with Weapons N’ Roses.
Trujillo, in the meantime, has numerous different initiatives going, together with the band OTTTO, who’re set to play Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer time.
