THE SKULL, the heavy Doom Rock band, featuring original TROUBLE singer Eric Wagner, longtime former TROUBLE bassist Ron Holzner, SACRED DAWN guitarist Lothar Keller and ex-PENTAGRAM drummer Sean Saley, recruited guitarist Rob Wrong - also in WITCH MOUNTAIN - to replace Matt Goldsborough (ex-PENTAGRAM, CAROUSEL) who recently parted ways with the band.

The band says about Goldsborough’s departure:

Matt got really busy with his other projects and couldn’t join us on our recent West coast tour, so we recruited Willy Max (ex-BLACKFINGER) to fill in. Matt has decided to carry on 100% with CAROUSEL and we wish him well.”

In other news, THE SKULL will hit the stage of Reggies Rock Club in Chicago, IL on December 04, featuring Rob and Willy for a 3-guitar attack. This show will be recorded (audio & video) for a future release. Also, the band plans to hit the studio in the beginning of December to start recording the successor of “For Those Which Are Asleep” (reviewed HERE) that was released in November 2014 via Tee Pee Records and received raving reviews.
