Alex Skolnick Trio announce UK and European dates!

Review2708_AST

When he's not touring the world as guitarist for thrash metal legends testament, Alex Skolnick can be found leading his very own jazz outfit, The Alex Skolnick Trio.

As well as featuring the dextrous guitar skills of Skolnick, the band also includes Matt Zebroski on drums, and Nathan Peck on bass.
The Trio is well known for its inventive jazz take on hard rock and heavy metal 'standards' (their repertoire includes metal cornerstones such as Iron Maiden's 'The Trooper', Back Sabbath's 'War Pigs' and Metallica's 'Fade To Black' to name a few) but as the trio has developed they have added more and more of their own compositions to their ever evolving set.

Comments Alex; ‘I'm very excited to be making a trip to the UK and Europe this coming September with my improvisational group, Alex Skolnick Trio. Our last album, Veritas, received some of the best reviews of our careers, including this one: http://www.aaamusic.co.uk/2011/08/01/alex-skolnick-%E2%80%93-veritas/. Despite that, it has been difficult to tour as much as we'd like, partially due to scheduling reasons (as some of you know, I've been busy touring with this group called Testament), economic challenges within the music industry, an occasional lack of acceptance by promoters that a guitarist best known for metal can wear a very different musical hat and the sudden departure of our management following Veritas's release. Thankfully, we have new management in place and are working more on taking advantage of the scheduling gaps to do more AST tours, as well as working on new music. We eagerly look forward to bringing the experience of AST live to our friends in the UK and Europe this September.’
