The Skull Plays Trouble

The Skull Plays Trouble was a tour composed in the winter of 2018, featuring Chicago doom metal band The Skull performing Trouble's 1990 self-titled record in it's entirety along with a handful of other songs.


On 6 December 2017 The Skull would announce a 15-date tour throughout parts of the United States where the band would perform Trouble's 1990 self-titled record in it's entirety. The final date of the tour on 9 February would get canceled due to weather issues. Current drummer Brian Dixon (Cathedral) was intended to drum on the tour but was ultimately unable to make it due to visa issues, prompting the band to recruit previous drummer Sean Saley.
