TROUBLE/RETRO GRAVE drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson has issued the following update:"I'm pleased to announce the addition of two new band members to front RETRO GRAVE: J. Cortes and Rob Zimmermann. Both players sing and play bass guitar. "I plan on creating a huge low-range wall of sound by interchanging baritone and bass guitars, exclusively for doom. I already use this trick in the studio, but now I can use it live in concert. In addition, J. Cortes is from Lima, Peru (now residing in Boston, Massachusetts) and Rob Zimmermann is from the Netherlands, which will bring a broad range of musical influences and international sound to the band." RETRO GRAVE is currently in the studio in Portland, Maine recording its debut full-length, "Again", for a spring 2008 release. "Again" will consist of 12 songs, including one bonus track. In other news, TROUBLE will perform a one-off show at the House of Blues in Chicago on January 27, 2008. A European tour will follow in the spring, including an appearance the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland.
