A new album from Skeleton Key is in the works, and we need your help to complete it!
Marionetteer/musician Erik Sanko and his New York based band, SKELETON KEY, have lovingly cultivated a slew of brand new garbage and melody inspired recordings. A new album, comprised of 13 songs, is completely tracked, and ready to be mastered and released. This self-released album will be the band's third full length release; following their debut "Fantastic Spikes Through Balloon" on Capitol Records, and follow up "Obtainum" on Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings. Over 8 years in the making, this long awaited Skeleton Key album was engineered and produced by Mr. Bryce Goggin (PAVEMENT, RAMONES, SPACEHOG), with contributions from Andy Agenbroad, and Andy Green. It features a delicious array of musicians from the band's history accompanying bassist/singer Erik Sanko: Craig LeBlang (CHINESE RIB CAGE), Matthias Bossi (SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM), Tim Keiper (CYRO BAPTISTA) Sean Sankey (BOXCAR SATAN), Benjamin Clapp (BAPTIZED BY FIRE), Bob Vaccarelli (MISS TK AND THE REVENGE), Carla Kihlstedt (SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM), Alec Ferrell (THE HOLY GHOST), and Tod A (COP SHOOT COP).
