SKINLAB Postpone Hiatus To Play West Coast Dates

San Francisco Bay Area metallers SKINLAB, who recently announced plans to take a lengthy hiatus, have decided to honor their previously announced West Coast touring commitments taking place in late August. Filling in for guitarist Glen Telford at the upcoming shows will be his predecessor, Scott Sargent. "It's been awhile since we jammed with Scott, who is now touring bassist for Billy Milano's M.O.D.," SKINLAB frontman Steev Esquivel writes on the band's web site. "Scott and I have been friends for so long, that when I asked him to join us for the West Coast dates , he said 'Fuck yeah', as if he never left. If there is any guitarists who can pick up three albums' worth of material to play in three weeks, he's the man!!! This is gonna be killer, I can't wait! ... See you in the pit!"

Upcoming SKINLAB tour dates:

Aug. 21 - The Annex – Eugene, OR
Aug. 22 - Ash Street Saloon – Portland, OR
Aug. 23 - Seattle Metal Fest – Seattle, WA
Aug. 24 - Fat Tuesdays – Spokane, WA
