The EP contains muscular punk-infused aural angst that is offset with melodic intensity, all created by members from other celebrated Austin punk bands Nosferatu, Residual Kid, The Real Cost, Recide, Enemy One, Plax, and Witewash.
Formed in 2014 by Victor Ziolkowski (drums, bass, guitar, and vocals) and David Ziolkowski (lead guitar and bass), the SKELETON line up is now complete with Alex Recide on bass. Following two previous flexi-disc EP releases, the new EP sees the trio’s traditional punk roots intact as they gravitate towards a more metallic delivery of their music.
“Pyramid Of Skull” was recorded in Austin by producer Orville Neeley (OBN III’s, A Giant Dog, Bad Sports) and mastered by Seth Gibbs. The EP is now streaming here for your listening enjoyment and will be available on 7″ and digital download this Friday (June 29); pre-order is active now HERE.
