Iconic New York City band Live Skull will bring its singular sound on the road for a US tour in September.
Pioneers of the Downtown Manhattan scene of the 1980s, alongside bands like Sonic Youth and Swans, and amidst artists and filmmakers like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Richard Kern, Live Skull resurfaced and reformed in 2019 after a 30-year hiatus, releasing two albums: Saturday Night Massacre (2019) and Dangerous Visions (2020).
The new lineup, led by founding guitarist/vocalist Mark C and the last drummer to occupy the Live Skull drum throne in the '80s, Rich Hutchins, will deliver the band's violent hymns to the people, this fall, via a two-week run across the East Coast and Midwest. Flanking C and Hutchins are Kent Heine on bass and dAve Hollinghurst on guitar and vocals.
