THE SKULL is the new band featuring vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of metal legends TROUBLE, and the twin guitar tandem of Lothar Keller and Matt Goldsborough (ex-PENTAGRAM). THE SKULL, who released its debut album, For Those Which Are Asleep, to roaring response this past fall, has welcomed new drummer Sean Saley -- also formerly of PENTAGRAM -- into the fold, replacing former stick man, and founding TROUBLE member, Jeff "Oly" Olson.

Now, THE SKULL announces U.S. tour dates in support of For Those Which Are Asleep, including three live performances as part of the 2015 SXSW Music Festival, set for March 17-22, in Austin, Texas. At the shows, THE SKULL will perform both songs from its debut and time-tested favorites from its canon of TROUBLE classics.

The just-announced live dates are as follows:

  • 3.17 - St. Louis, MO - The Demo
  • 3.18 - Tulsa, OK - Downtown Lounge
  • 3.19 - Fort Worth, TX - The Rail
  • 3.20 - Austin, TX - SXSW @ Dirty Dog (w/ WEEDEATER)
  • 3.21 - Austin, TX - SXSW @ The Lost Well ("Heavy Metal Parking Lot II" w/ KING PARROT, FOGG + more)
  • 3.21 - Austin, TX - SXSW @ Gypsy Lounge (Thrasher "Death Match" w/ OM, GOATSNAKE, THE SHRINE + more)
  • 3.22 - Oklahoma City, OK - The Music Room
  • 3.23 - Kansas City, MO - Riot Room
  • 4.17 - Vancouver, BC - Rickshaw Theater * As part of Nothing is Heavy Fest (w/ SACRIFICE and ANCIENTS)
  • 6.26 - Frederick, MD - Cafe 611 * As part of Maryland Doom Fest (w/ SPIRIT CARAVAN, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE)
"We're looking forward to getting back on the road again and playing songs off our new record," comments Holzner. "Having Matt Goldsborough, and now Sean Saley, both formerly of PENTAGRAM, in THE SKULL, is truly special. Austin is always a great time, and playing SXSW with this lineup of musicians is going to rock!"

"I am extremely psyched to be joining the band in time to carry out the live campaign to bring For Those Which Are Asleep to the masses," says Saley. "I'd like to thank Ron, Eric, Matt, and Lothar for making me feel welcome and appreciating what I can bring to THE SKULL. I'd also like to thank Oly for laying the solid foundation, that I can build on, and for being an iconic drummer I've respected for decades. Last, but not least, I am also amped-up to reunite with Matt Goldsborough, my former bandmate from PENTAGRAM, who is a great guitarist and a true rocker! More than any tour I've ever been part of, I'm looking forward to SXSW and all the shows on this upcoming tour, as well as future tours and albums with THE SKULL. See you on the road. DOOM ON!"

THE SKULL's For Those Which Are Asleep features ten tracks of elemental Heavy Metal. The record's greatest strength is how well it captures the apocalyptic trudge that the iconic TROUBLE delivered from the first downbeat of their 1984 debut, but now unequivocally propelled by the hallmarks of a hungry new band fueled by new blood. The mighty voice of Eric Wagner is on full display; the vocalist proving on For Those Which Are Asleep that he still wields an eerie power at the mic. Make no mistake, THE SKULL are in complete command of their craft and have capably created a modern classic; a recording where atmosphere is established as drums crash, guitars blare and stories are told.
