After stints with KMFDM, MARILYN MANSON and SKOLD VS. KMFDM as producer/songwriter/guitarist/bassist, Tim Skold will return this spring with his first full-length solo album in 15 years, "Anomie". Delivering a snarky CD single prelude on April 12 via Metropolis Records, "Suck", setting the stage for a May 10 full album release, SKOLD steps up once again, supplying sonic solvent for the huffing social cynics.
"Anomie" will be made available as a 12-track CD or digital download as well as a digital deluxe version with two bonus tracks. It can be pre-ordered from Metropolis Records at this location. As an extra special bonus, the first 1111 pre-orders from Metropolis will receive a super exclusive hand-numbered and autographed "Anomie" postcard.
"Anomie" track listing:
01. (This Is My) Elephant
03. Black Out
04. Angel Of Noise
07. The Hunger
08. Here Comes The Thunder
09. And Then We Die
10. Miserably Never Ever
12. What You See Is What You Get
Digital deluxe bonus tracks:
13. Polka Dot Dress
According to a press release, "Suck" raises a flag taken up by cohorts and allies like COMBICHRIST, KMFDM, 16VOLT and FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, who have shown up to contribute their own remixes of the track. Three additional SKOLD tracks round out the single-cum-EP: "I Will Not Forget", "Bullets Ricochet" and "A Dark Star".
Gestating through production and composition with such artists as KMFDM and MARILYN MANSON, producing feats like the #1 Billboard-charting album "The Golden Age Of Grotesque" (featuring the song "mOBSCENE", which was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Metal Performance") and the critically acclaimed "Eat Me, Drink Me", Skold arrived prodigiously throughout 2009, having dispatched the album SKOLD VS. KMFDM and three new solo teaser tracks — "I Will Not Forget", "Bullets Ricochet" and "A Dark Star" — garnished with validation by accolades of TV placement in shows like "NCIS" and "FlashForward", and rabid fan consumption.
