After the official breakup of Suspect208, Tye Trujillo and Noah Weiland have unveiled they’ve started a new band called Blu Weekend. The musicians, who are the sons of Metalica bassist Robert Trujillo and late Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, are also joined in the band by guitarist Anthony Laurie and drummer Jackson Morris.

They have yet to release any music, but they had their first gig at the Hollywood Film Festival after-party on June 27th. Trujillo told Eric Blair of Blairing Out with Eric Blair that the music is more punk-oriented.

“I guess we have more of a punk vibe. What we’re gonna play tonight is gonna be more of a punk vibe to it,” he said. “Cause we’re gonna play a song ‘Shark Attack,’ playing one of Noah’s old songs. So, it should be pretty fun.”

Blair also asked Trujillo if he would be filling in on bass for Korn during their tour. Fieldy announced he would be taking a break from touring, and Trujillo took the spot last time it happened in 2017 – when he was just 12 years old.

“I’m ready,” he said. “I mean, I know the songs from a while back, so you know, I have my experience playing, and if they’re interested, then I’m obviously more than down to go play with them.”
