Leigh Olson Management has announced that THE SKULL — the new band featuring original TROUBLE members vocalist Eric Wagner and drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson alongside TROUBLE‘s longtime bassist Ron Holzner and SACRED DAWN guitarist Lothar Keller – have signed an exclusive deal with U.S. booking agency Tone Deaf Touring for the band’s upcoming 2014 tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of TROUBLE’s debut record “Psalm 9.”
Tone Deaf Touring will handle the band’s territory of U.S, Canada, South America, and Australia. Tour dates (including Europe) will be announced in the coming weeks.
In a recent interview with the Greek zine Metalpaths.com vocalist Eric Wagner said, “Next year we are planning a tour, where we are going to play the whole Psalm 9 in it, and a new record to celebrate Psalm 9’s thirty- year anniversary.”
During the same interview, MetalPath’s asked whether THE SKULL would be working with producer Billy Anderson for the debut record. Bassist Ron Holzner responded, “Actually we worked with Billy Anderson on two songs. I always wanted to work with him and he always wanted to work with us, so we had two songs, ready to record and we wanted to see how they would sound. We are not sure we will do the whole record with Billy Anderson because he is too busy and he is staying in South America for months. We can’t wait for him.” You can read the entire interview at this location.
THE SKULL is currently negotiating a record deal for their as-yet-untitled debut full-length album that will be announced this winter.
THE SKULL is:
Eric Wagner – vocals
Jeff “Oly” Olson – drums/keys
Ron Holzner – bass
Lothar Keller – guitar
As recently reported, drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson will be scheduling a meet and greet and launch party at Idle Hands Bar located in New York City on Saturday, March 1st from 8PM-11PM to celebrate his new Imperial Stout, Red Howes, that Olson released with Allagash Brewing Company last Saturday, January 25th.
