The Skull - Releasing Debut Album This Year

Some of you have probably heard of The Skull before. This is the new band featuring original members Eric Wagner (vocals) and Jeff "Oly" Olson (drums) of American doom metal legends Trouble alongside longtime Trouble bassist Ron Holzner and Sacred Dawn guitarist Lothar Keller. The Skull have inked a deal with Tee Pee Records, the NYC record label known for releasing landmark albums from acts such as High On Fire, Graveyard, Earthless and Sleep. The band will follow the release of new songs with its debut full length album, tentatively slated for release this autumn.

The Skull recently recorded two songs with acclaimed producer/engineer Billy Anderson (Melvins, Neurosis) which will see the light of day this spring, "Sometime Yesterday Mourning" and "The Last Judgement" (a revisiting of the classic Trouble song of the same name that originally appeared on the classic 1983 Metal Massacre IV compilation album).

Commented Eric Wagner: "I think 'Sometime Yesterday Mourning' is the perfect song for The Skull to lead with and there's a reason why it was the first song we completed as a band. It's about coming to a point in life when it's just time for a new beginning, a fresh start if you will, and finally coming to terms with the past. Being that it is the 30th anniversary of the release of the song 'The Last Judgement' the first song we ever released we thought it fit perfectly for the B-side and considering what 'Sometime Yesterday Mourning' is about, it made sense to me. You have to go through your past to get to your future."

The Skull recently signed an exclusive deal with US booking agency Tone Deaf Touring for the band's upcoming 2014 trek celebrating the 30th anniversary of Trouble's debut record, Psalm 9.
