Kory Clarke Quits Trouble, New Project To Be Called The Bones Of Children

Warrior Soul singer Kory Clarke has announced his departure from Chicago doom legends Trouble to form a new band called The Bones of Children with guitarist Russ Strahan (Pentagram/Land of Doom). Clarke commented on his Facebook page:

"This Metal Album will be high energy, with a fresh artistic approach to the genre without the limitations of the over '50 something religious crowd.' It will be so nice to be working without the shackles that a previous singer has left behind of a band that is over 30 years old and acts and sounds like it. I like to do progressive, pushing the boundary lyrics in an individualistic style, I don’t want to sound like Ozzy, like their old singer [Eric Wagner] tried to do. I am also glad when I look to my left on stage from now on, I will not be seeing 'Derek Smalls' in my peripheral vision. LOL. I just cannot play with people who are fundamentalist Christians, or too family oriented to the point that they can't tour, do records or knock down a few margaritas with me at the bar. This is rock n roll guys not the family channel."

The Bones Of Children will release its debut in fall 2012.

Good. Let Wagner come back! The amount of disrespect he shows the band with his petty comments is laughable.

I saw Trouble with Kory last year. I didn't think he fit with the band at all. He comes across like a Steven Tyler wannabe. Hardly doom.

In fact, he reminded me of Dr. Rockzo, the rock and roll clown from Metalocalypse. "I do cocaine!". Or in Kory's instance, "I do margaritas!"

I was pretty surprised at the flippant dissing myself. I am all for a Wagner return! Kory belongs with Warrior Soul and Warrior Soul alone.

you were rude and beligerent to trouble fans fans as well as other bands that toured with us .
your stage presenese is that of a broken down poor mans david lee roth and looking at your micheal jackson moves on stage was equally embarrising .
you musta been confused and thought you joined the bullet boys or some other glam act like warrior soul !

Have to say, whether fired or quit I'm glad he's not in the band any more. I listened to the version of "Come Touch The Sky" they put out and it was alright, but come on Wagner can't be touched.

Trouble on the other hand, god damn get a new vocalist and put out that album you've been sitting on for so long!! God damn I love Trouble.

They should get Bobbie Wright from Brocas Helm to sing for them, double the Derek Smalls.

Bring back EW or retire from the scene. Being a shadow of one's fomer self tarnishes the ledgend. Yet another great band who gets little to no respect.
