THE SKULL, the band featuring vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of metal legends TROUBLE, and the twin guitar tandem of Lothar Keller and Matt Goldsborough (ex-PENTAGRAM), has welcomed new drummer Sean Saley — also formerly of PENTAGRAM — into the fold. Saley joins THE SKULL as the replacement for original TROUBLE drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson, who left THE SKULL in January.

"I am extremely psyched to be joining the band in time to carry out the live campaign to bring [THE SKULL's debut album] 'For Those Which Are Asleep' to the masses," says Saley.

"I'd like to thank Ron, Eric, Matt, and Lothar for making me feel welcome and appreciating what I can bring to THE SKULL. I'd also like to thank Oly for laying the solid foundation that I can build on, and for being an iconic drummer I've respected for decades. Last, but not least, I am also amped up to reunite with Matt Goldsborough, my former bandmate from PENTAGRAM, who is a great guitarist and a true rocker!"

THE SKULL released its debut album, "For Those Which Are Asleep", on November 4, 2014 via Tee Pee Records.

Written and recorded last year, "For Those Which Are Asleep" was the first full-length album to feature Wagner, Holzner and Olson since the 1995 release of TROUBLE's critically acclaimed LP "Plastic Green Head".
