Skinless Re-Signs With Relapse Records

Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the official re-signing of recently reunited New York death metal legends Skinless, who also recruited the confusingly named Dave Matthews as a new guitarist last week.

Formed in 1992, in Albany, New York, Skinless has released four full-length albums and numerous EPs throughout a 20+ year career. After disbanding in 2011, the group is now back together with the classic "Progression Towards Evil" lineup (vocalist Sherwood Webber, guitarist Noah Carpenter, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac) plus the recent addition of Dave Matthews on second guitar.

Comments vocalist Sherwood Webber: "Relapse Records! I'm sure it's rare for a band to speak so highly of their label after a thirteen-year relationship. It's an honor to have such a team to work with. Relapse's support and friendship is beyond appreciated. The Relapse experience is hard to explain, but you can notice immense camaraderie between all the bands on the roster. It's been one of the great privileges I've had in the music business to be a part of the Relapse family. Thanks guys, tell the world it's doomed!"

Adds founding guitarist Noah Carpenter: "We're proud to be a part of the sadistic Relapse family once again. Skinless is far overdue for a new album so that will be our priority for the next year. Basically we're going to put the Progression, Foreshadowing and Trample albums into a blender, add some guitar solos and serve up the heaviest Skinless release yet."

The group will soon begin writing a follow-up to 2006's "Trample The Weak, Hurdle The Dead," which is expected to be released in late 2014. You can also catch the band live:
