Reunited Chicago doomsters TROUBLE will be teaming up with CANDLEMASS and FORCE OF EVIL (featuring members of MERCYFUL FATE and KING DIAMOND) for a one-off gig in Sweden in late November. The show, the exact date for which has not yet been announced, will be recorded for a future DVD release through Escapi (CANDLEMASS, DISMEMBER, KRUX, THE HELLACOPTERS).
TROUBLE entered the studio in early August to record a new EP, titled "Unplugged", containing acoustic versions of five classic TROUBLE numbers along with two brand new songs, at least one of which was written by vocalist Eric Wagner and new bassist Chuck Robinson (formerly of THIS TORTURED SOUL).
The track listing for the "classic" portion of the "Unplugged" CD is as follows:
01. Misery Shows Act II
05. Tragedy Man
Also coming soon from the band is a five-song DVD containing the following videos:
The DVD and CD will only be available on the band's web site and will not be shipped to retail outlets.
Says Wagner, "We are a little behind with the unplugged CD but the good news is that it is sounding great! All the music is done and I've started to put on the vocals. We think you all are really going to enjoy this I can't even wait to hear it."
TROUBLE are set to enter the studio before the end of the year with producer Vincent Wojno (MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR, KONKHRA) to record their long-awaited new album, titled "Seven".
According to Wagner, 15 songs have been written so far for the album, including "After The Rain", "Seven", "A Bad Situation", "Goin' Home", "Doombox" and "A New Generation". "It's still heavy, it's still TROUBLE, maybe a little more modern," says Eric. "It's still us. It's our seventh album and it was going to be seven years since our last album, but now it's going to be a little more." TROUBLE's last studio album, "Plastic Green Head", came out in 1995.
