Crossbone Skully is a new project led by Tommy Henriksen, who is guitarist and musical director for Alice Cooper’s band and member of Hollywood Vampires. They shared their single “The Boom Went The Boom (feat. Phil Collen of Def Leppard)” last month and have returned with new track, “I’m Unbreakable,” out today via Better Noise Music.
“I’m Unbreakable” was recorded with Henriksen on lead vocals, guitar, bass, percussion and sound design, with Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper, Hollywood Vampires) on drums, Jamie Muhoberac (My Chemical Romance, John Mayer, Seal) on keys, Jason Roller (Ganjo), and The Hellhounds on backing vocals.
It was executively produced by the Mutt Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard) who emerged from retirement to work on their upcoming album.
The video for the track reveals the ban’s live lineup including Henriksen and Wyse, along with guitarists Sam “Bam” Koltun (Dorothy, Faster Pussycat, Budderside) and Anna Cara, along with Tuesdai on drums.
The entire Crossbone Skully universe is built around the age-old concept of good vs evil, right vs wrong and, as a result, that concept is central to the songs of the album. With ‘I’m Unbreakable,’ we wrote it while thinking about having confidence to know that you can win. We’re all warriors just dealing with the bullshit of everyday life that we all gotta deal with. I’m telling everyone to be strong and to believe in yourself because you are a warrior, you’ve made it this far so you must be unbreakable, remember that.
Crossbone Skully will release a series of limited-edition 7” vinyl singles with the first of the series having been announced with the release of “The Boom Went The Boom (feat. Phil Collen of Def Leppard)” in October.
After initially being available only through Spotify, the band have announced it will now be made available through their merch store at CrossboneSkully.com and will feature “I’m Unbreakable” as its B-side track.
The 7” will also come with a limited-edition signed copy of the band’s “Thing #1” ashcan comic. Proceeds from the sale of the limited edition 7” vinyl will be donated to the 501(c)(3) charity MusiCares who offer “preventive, emergency, and recovery programs for musicians and music industry workers in times of need.”
