TROUBLE’s first studio album in six years, “The Distortion Field”, landed at position No. 25 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Released in Europe on August 23, 2013 via FRW Records, the 12-song follow-up to 2007’s “Simple Mind Condition” was helmed by veteran producer Bill Metoyer (SLAYER, W.A.S.P., ARMORED SAINT, DARK ANGEL, SACRED REICH, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER, D.R.I.) and marked the recording debut with TROUBLE of lead singer Kyle Thomas following the departure of the group’s frontman of four years, Kory Clarke (of WARRIOR SOUL fame).
TROUBLE played its first show with the band’s new lineup — featuring Thomas and bassist Rob Hultz — on October 12, 2013 at the Day Of Doom festival in Barcelona, Spain.
