The Alex Skolnick Trio announce a new album

The Alex Skolnick Trio returns with their fourth album Veritas on July 30th. Veritas (Latin for “Truth”) is AST’s first release on innovative Jazz label Palmetto Records. The 11-track album contains 9 original compositions, a cover of Metallica’s “Fade To Black” and a bonus remix of the song “Bollywood Jam” by Jay Sustain and Nik Chinboukas. The record was produced by Alex Skolnick and recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York.

Alex Skolnick is a true guitar hero. At sixteen years old, he joined a group of twenty-somethings who’d formed a thrash metal band called Testament. Alex stayed with the band through five critically acclaimed albums and countless tours with, among others, Slayer, Megadeth, Judas Priest and White Zombie. After hearing and seeing one of Miles Davis’ electric bands on TV, Alex relocated to New York City to play and study jazz.

Veritas will become a favorite of music fans that enjoy some of the pillars of Jazz guitar – Scofield, Pat Metheny, Wes Montgomery, Bill Frisell, Jim Hall and George Benson - but recast from an edgier and more energetic perspective. Veritas is poised to further push the boundary of contemporary Jazz as fans of harder rock and metal are fast becoming a significant new audience in Jazz. It is this fast-growing group of listeners that forms the core fan base of AST. They want truth in live performance, they want truth in great songs, they want Veritas.

The Alex Skolnick Trio will tour internationally all throughout 2011 in support of Veritas.
