Skull Fist To Release New Album "Chasing The Dream"

Skull Fist's Jackie Slaughter has checked in with the following announcement about releasing a new album:

"It's what you've always been waiting for! It has new songs. And a different cover. It was recorded at a different studio. It has new guitar solos, and new rhythms. And new bass parts. And new drums. And new lyrics, and different girlish screams. And strange new dead cat vocals."

What the illustruous frontman is trying to say is that Skull Fist didn't bother with experiments, but instead opted once more to deliver timeless heavy metal perfect for every headbanger's party. The band recorded at the Vespa Studios in Toronto, with Slaughter stating: "It's actually owned by the bro who sang in Harem Scarem back in the early 90s! Totally right on. Harry Hess is his name. The album was mixed and mastered by Eric Ratz. We're doing the vocals at Lenz Studios with the same guy that did the last album actually, Dan Tsourounis."

The Canadian jokster explains the near 3-year break in between "Head of the Pack" and "Chasing the Dream" as follows: “Money doesn't grow on trees apparently. We didn't have enough moula when we originally planned to record, so we pushed it back 2 months and then one month later I selfishly decided to break my neck skateboarding which put us out for another 2 months.”

The track listing is as follows:

1. Hour To Live
2. Bad For Good
3. Chasing The Dream
4. Call Of The Wild
5. Sign Of The Warrior
6. You´re Gonna Pay
7. Don´t Stop The Fight
8. Shred´s Not Dead
9. Mean Street Rider

The album will be released on the following dates via NoiseArt Records and will be available as a CD, gatefold vinyl, and digital download:

Germany/Austria/Switzerland: January 10
Spain/Sweden/Norway: January 15
Rest of Europe: January 13
North America: January 14
