NEW Single Killing Machine Out Now!

October 14th, 2016

Chicago heavy metal band HESSLER are proud to announce the release of their new single; Killing Machine.  The band has spent the past two years rebuilding, writing new music, and will be releasing a six track E.P. titled Skeleton Crew, on November 3, 2016.

The new direction of the band is a four piece with founder Igz Kincaid on Lead Vocals & Guitars and longtime bassist Erik Michael switching to guitars.  The band brought in former drummer Tom Wierzbicky Jr. (Icarus Witch, Thunderfist) to play drums on the new recording.  Production on Skeleton Crew began in late June 2106 at M&M Studios in Chicago, IL with Tony McQuaid (Loudmouth/High Grass Dogs) at the helm; Mixing and mastering was completed by McQuaid in early October.

HESSLER will utilize the new release as a launching pad into 2017, starting off the year with a support slot for DIRKSCHNEIDER (Udo former ACCEPT) on January 17 in Chicago, IL.  Backed by new music and a vengeance to perform harder than ever before, the band is looking to build upon their reputation in the metal and rock scenes through extensive touring in 2017.
