The Skull, the band featuring vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of metal legends Trouble, has completed work on its sophomore album. Titled “The Endless Road Turns Dark”, the LP was recorded in Chicago’s Decade Music Studios with engineer Sanford Parker (Yob Tombs) and builds on the foundation laid by The Skull‘s debut album, “For Those Which Are Asleep”, a recording that landed at or near the top of a host of 2014 year-end best of lists. A fall release date is projected for the new LP.
To celebrate the completion of the new album, The Skull, which also features longtime Cathedral drummer Brian Dixon, guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn), and guitarist Rob Wrong (Witch Mountain), has announced a spring U.S. headlining tour that will launch on April 18 in Rochester, New York. The 16-city jaunt will run through May 5 in Lombard, Illinois.
