Trouble - Introduce New Bassist

Doom metal legends Trouble have announced their new bassist: Rob Hultz. He will make his debut on the band's Fall tour. Trouble have then made a permanent addition to the band line-up. Hultz has already begun rehearsals and will debut live with the band for a series of European show dates scheduled for October 2013, the details of which are still pending and will be announced later.

While Rob Hultz was still in high school, he joined an East Coast hardcore band called Social Decay which served as his introduction to recording and touring. After a decade, he left with the guitar player to form the doom metal band Godspeed and was signed to Atlantic Records. The band was represented by Gloria Butler Management and toured with iconic bands such as Black Sabbath, Dio, and Cathedral, to name just a few.

In 1996, Hultz helped form Solace, another notable doom metal band, which was signed to Meteor City Records, and played large arenas, clubs, and festivals such as Roadburn and Hellfest. Since then, Hultz has lent his talents on projects for Lethal Aggression and Disease Concept.

Commenting on the band's decision, Trouble founder and guitarist Rick Wartell states: "Bruce Franklin and I played the bass parts on The Distortion Field, with the exception of one song. However as we began preparing to tour in support of the album, it became really important to choose the right person for the band. Rob is not only a great bass player but also a total pro with an impressive band history, and he's got the Trouble-personality so he definitely fits in well. We look forward to him joining us on the road and being a band-mate for a long time to come."
