The Skull Inks Deal With Tee Pee Records

The Skull - featuring original members Eric Wagner (vocals) and Jeff "Oly" Olson (drums) of American doom metal legends Trouble alongside longtime Trouble bassist Ron Holzner and Sacred Dawn guitarist Lothar Keller -- has inked a deal with Tee Pee Records.

The Skull recently recorded two songs with acclaimed producer / engineer Billy Anderson (Melvins, Neurosis), which will see the light of day this spring. "Sometime Yesterday Mourning" is a doomy metal song written by Keller, Holzner and Wagner that showcases the genre pioneers' distinct style while "The Last Judgement" is a "revisiting" of the classic Trouble song of the same name that originally appeared on the 1983 "Metal Massacre IV" compilation album.

"I think 'Sometime Yesterday Mourning' is the perfect song for The Skull to lead with and there's a reason why it was the first song we completed as a band," commented Wagner. "It's about coming to a point in life when it's just time for a new beginning, a fresh start if you will, and finally coming to terms with the past. Being that it is the 30th anniversary of the release of the song 'The Last Judgement' -- the first song we ever released -- we thought it fit perfectly for the B-side and considering what 'Sometime Yesterday Mourning' is about, it made sense to me. You have to go through your past to get to your future."

The Skull will follow the release of the new songs with a debut full length LP, tentatively slated for release this autumn.
