THE SKULL
THE SKULL
The Skull is a heavy metal band founded by three former members of Trouble, vocalist Eric Wagner, bassist Ron Holzner and drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson. In May 2012, Olson departed from The Skull due to his desire to "wait for a real Trouble reunion with original members or not play Trouble's music at all." However, on August 19th, 2013 Olson rejoined The Skull stating, "I want to rock again." [1] The Skull performs a large portion of Trouble's first two pioneering doom metal albums; Psalm 9 and self-titled The Skull; and perform a large catalogue of several other Trouble classics. [2]

The Skull headlined the Hell's Pleasure festival in Pößneck, Germany in July 2012 alongside NWOBHM band Angel Witch. In late August and early September 2012, The Skull completed a tour of the US East coast and finished that trek by headlining the SHOD Fest (Stoner Hand Of Doom) in New London, Connecticut. The Skull toured Europe in late 2012, including co-headlining the Hammer of Doom festival with the band Pentagram. This European tour also included performances in Germany, Netherlands, Austria, and Sweden, among others.

The Skull have been writing and performing new original material and have scheduled a West coast tour of the US for late 2013. Part of this tour will be headlining the Denver Doom Fest.

On March 5, 2014, former Trouble bassist Chuck Robinson joined the band as the guitarist.[4] Over a month later, it was announced that Robinson had exited the band in order to focus on "his demanding professional career", and former Pentagram guitarist Matt Goldsborough would be his replacement.[5]

On August 24, 2014, the band announced that their debut album, titled For Those Which Are Asleep, would be released on November 4 through Tee Pee Records.
