March 24, 2007

Bassist/vocalist Steev Esquivel of reactivated San Francisco Bay Area metallers SKINLAB has issued the following update:

"Things have been going strong in the SKINLAB camp. We've been rehearsing a sick 15-song set that is sounding heavy as hell. We're all looking forward to getting back on the road and seeing all you crazy 'Labrats!!'

"The tour line up has been finalized! Main support will be coming from the mighty WILL HAVEN. We're just stoked as hell to have them on the tour; we've been fans of them forever. Just gonna be straight-up awesome to be able to watch them every night!! We're also stoked to be bringing out ANKLA; these boys are on fire right now. Be sure to come out and see them before they blow up on Ozzfest this year. Our Bay Area brothers HOSTILITY, APIARY (May 3-12) and new Corporate Punishment signing PAIN PRINCIPLE (May 12-June 3) will be rotating the first three spots.

Gonna be a brutal fukin tour. We'll have more info next week along with a sample of the new song 'Face of Aggression'... Yup, that's right!!'
