Hessler release new song “Killing Machine”
Heavy metal rockers Hessler are back with a new song entitled “Killing Track” from their upcoming new album, the aptly named Skeleton Crew, which will be released on November 3, 2016.
Although Sleaze Roxx has not been made privy to the significance behind the album title Skeleton Crew, it will offer its theory behind the album title. It would appear that the Skeleton Crew title is a reference to the diminished ranks amid the Hessler camp as following the departure of singer Jessikill in November 2014 and guitarist Frank “Snakes” Spirada and drummer Derek Spiteri the following month, the remaining members Igz Kincaid (guitar) and Erik Michael (bass) elected to soldier on. In the process, it was decided that Kincaid would add the role of lead singer and Michael switched from bass to guitar. Although the duo have been working hard on the release of Hessler‘s new album, the band has yet to announce any new official band members resulting in what appears to be the name Skeleton Crew for the new record. Hessler currently have Tom Wierzbicky Jr. (drummer) and The Last Vegas‘ Adam Arling (bass) listed as touring musicians on their Facebook site.
Skeleton Crew can be pre-ordered via hessler.bigcartel.com.
Hessler‘s last studio EP Ghost Dance finished #3 on Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2014. Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Ghost Dance: “Hessler have definitely gotten better recording wise with the addition of Jessikill. Suffice to say I have been playing Ghost Dance non-stop ever since receiving it in the mail and I love it a little more each time. This is definitely one of my favorite CDs of 2014 thus far, and I can’t wait to see Hessler play these songs live!”
