After nearly a decade on the scene, Los Angeles-based, female-fronted metallers CRISIS have changed their name to SKULLSICK NATION. According to guitarist Jwyanza, the name change is due to the fact that "the band has just gone through so many changes over the last four years since [we put out our last CD] The Hollowing that it feels like a completely new band." At the moment, SKULLSICK NATION are in the process of writing material for a new demo, which should be completed in the coming weeks. An official web site at www.skullsicknation.com is currently under construction. SKULLSICK NATION, who recently acquired new drummer Chris Olivas to replace the departed Tony Costanza (formerly of MACHINE HEAD, currently in CROWBAR),are scheduled to play at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California on Friday, January 4th.
