Legendary Chicago doomsters TROUBLE have posted the following message on their official web site:
"The music is finished for the new CD, 'Simple Mind Condition'. It's awesome. Eric [Wagner, vocals] will be finished by the end of November 2005 and the release date has been set for March 2006. Samples and promos will be shipped earlier.
"TROUBLE is under contract with two labels, one for USA, and one for Europe. This is the date the labels finally can agree on. On the other hand, they seem to agree to put out the 'Trouble live in Stockholm' DVD in late January 2006. Tours and festivals are already in the works for the spring and summer of 2006. Also, dates are being discussed for the re-release of the first two CDs ('Psalm', 'Skull') for sometime in 2006.
"To sum it up, there will be plenty of TROUBLE in the New Year. More than ever."
TROUBLE's new CD is being produced by Vinny Wojno (KREATOR, MACHINE HEAD) and is expected to be issued Escapi Music in Europe and Century Media in the U.S. The group's current lineup includes guitarists Rick Wartell and Bruce Franklin, drummer Jeff Olson and bassist Chuck Robinson (formerly of THIS TORTURED SOUL). 15 songs are currently being recorded for the follow-up to 1995's "Plastic Green Head", including "Mindbender", "Seven", "Beginning of Sorrows", and "After the Rain". The group's previously announced "unplugged" EP is currently "on hold" and will be completed later this year, Wartell recently told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.
