MDM X : 12th Band Announcement – The Skull
MMDM proudly announces US doom metal super-group THE SKULL as one its main headliners for the festival’s mammoth 10th Anniversary edition next October. Formed by legendary former Trouble vocalist and frontman Eric Wagner and ex-Trouble bassist Ron Holzer and also featuring Brian Dixon (ex-Cathedral) on drums, Witch Mountain guitarist Rob Wrong along with Sacred Dawn/Divinity Compromised guitarist Lothar Keller, THE SKULL are unleashing a new album titled “The Endless Road Turns Dark” this year to follow up the majestic “For Those Which are Asleep (2014)”. The band have announced a series of European dates including MDM to launch their new opus. You can expect a crushing live set from this mega and exceptional doom metal outfit including some genre-defining tunes from the legendary Trouble.
Official the skull statement.
Chicago’s The Skull, have confirmed that work is complete on their new album which is scheduled for release this autumn via Tee Pee Records. To accompany this news, the band have also announced a run of European tour dates for later in the year.
The band have confirmed that the new album will be titled The Endless Road Turns Dark – and no doubt tracks from this will feature heavily on the tour set list, alongside earlier tracks, and some classic Trouble numbers.
Among the show dates will be a two-night stint in Haugesund, Norway, where the band will play an all-Trouble set one night, and THE SKULL only on the other night.
THE SKULL features former Trouble members vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, alongside Sacred Dawn/Divinity Compromised guitarist Lothar Keller, Brian Dixon of Cathedral, and Witch Mountain guitarist, Rob Wrong.
