Veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers SKINLAB have entered the studio with producer Ulrich Wild to begin recording their new album. The disc will mark the band’s recording debut with new drummer Fabian Vestod, who joined SKINLAB last year following the exit of the group’s longtime drummer Paul Hopkins.

SKINLAB bassist/vocalist Steev Esquivel said: “Fabian, who is no stranger to SKINLAB, has been friends with the band for many years. Fabian came in strong and started recording demos and immediately became the obvious choice that he was our guy.

“10 brand new tracks of brutality are in the works and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

“We’re on a new mission to get back on the radar and more importantly back on the stage to do what we love doing.

“These are exciting times for SKINLAB. We’ve got our nose to the grind. Expect a new heavy and see you on the road this summer.”

SKINLAB‘s new album will be released later in the year via Art Is War Records.

Last year, SKINLAB announced the return of guitarist Steve Green, best known to fans as Snake. Snake remains a member of THE DEVIL IN CALIFORNIA, with whom he’s been performing since 2015.

Formed in 1994, SKINLAB has released four studio albums: 1997’s “Bound, Gagged And Blindfolded”, 1999’s “Disembody: The New Flesh”, 2002’s “ReVolting Room” and 2009’s “The Scars Between Us”.

SKINLAB has had different lineups throughout its history, with Esquivel as the only mainstay.

The band’s current lineup is completed by lead guitarist Marcos Medina Rivera.
