Scott Weiland and Slash’s sons Noah Weiland and London Hudson have debuted the second single from their band Suspect208, with a music video for “All Black.” Suspect208’s debut single “Long Awaited” sounded like it could have been a Velvet Revolver song, but “All Black” sounds entirely different, combining a pop punk sound with 60’s pop rock influences heard on STP material like Shangri La Dee Da.
It’s impressive to hear such variety with two songs, and the band’s debut EP they are working on is definitely one of the most anticipated releases of early 2021.
Suspect208 filmed the video at the Viper Room in Hollywood, with a live performance mixed with footage of the band, also featuring bassist Tye Trujillo (son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo) and guitarist Nico Tsangaris.
The Viper Room is currently run by Tommy Black, who played bass in Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, including on the group’s lone album Blaster in 2015. Black was the lone constant member in Weiland’s backing bands, with drummer Danny Thompson and guitarist Doug Grean departing prior to Weiland’s December 2015 death, and guitarist Jeremy Brown dying in March 2015.
Suspect208’s first single “Long Awaited” already has 880,000 views on YouTube, as the band establish themselves as rock’s fastest rising act since Greta Van Fleet exploded onto the scene a few years ago.
