THE INFAMOUS VOICE OF TROUBLE, ERIC WAGNER, SIGNS WITH M-THEORY AUDIO; NEW BLACKFINGER ALBUM DUE THIS SUMMER

April 18th, 2017

Eric Wagner is a unique and legendary voice in our scene, and M-Theory Audio is pleased to announce we’ll be releasing his next Blackfinger album, When Colors Fade Away, this summer.

Renowned and still cherished for the classic material he recorded with Chicago’s Trouble for over two decades, in recent years Wagner has been focusing on a couple other promising new bands in a similar vein and one of those is Blackfinger. Now relocated to Pittsburgh, Eric has a new full band lineup and is joined in Blackfinger for their sophomore album by another respected name in doom metal circles, guitarist Terry Weston of Dream Death/Penance.

I’m extremely excited to announce that Blackfinger has signed with M-Theory Audio,” cites Eric Wagner. “It is an honor and a pleasure to work with Marco Barbieri again after all these years.

“Eric, the pleasure is all mine,” responds M-Theory Audio’s Marco Barbieri. “Eric Wagner is a true artist, talent and storyteller. I’ve spent the last 34 years listening to classic tales weaved by this man; and he is truly one of my favorite vocalists. Along the way I’ve had the pleasure of working with Eric and Trouble while at Century Media during their Plastic Green Head album cycle and even had his other band, The Skull, headline one of the Doom in June Festivals. Now our co-operation and friendship continues and I am fortunate to release the new and phenomenal Blackfinger album.”

M-Theory Audio is the new label recently launched by Marco Barbieri, the former president of Century Media Records, whose previous experience includes Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade. Joining Marco in this adventure are colleagues whose past experience includes work for labels like Century Media, Prosthetic, Victory and Epitaph. The label’s roster includes Bay Area thrash outfit Cultural Warfare, Las Vegas prog/power metal band Sicocis, Sacramento headbangers Blessed Curse, Southern California’s Pagan Death Metallers Helsott, Nomadic Folk Metal band Tengger Cavalry, Female-fronted symphonic metal band Graveshadow and Nor Cal’s death/metalcore band Apothesary.

BLACKFINGER, the new project featuring ex-TROUBLE vocalist Eric Wagner, has released its first single, “All The Leaves Are Brown”, via Dark Star Records. The track was produced by Vincent Wojno (MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR, TROUBLE), who is currently mixing BLACKFINGER’s full-length debut, to be made available in 2012.

 

BLACKFINGER is:

 

Eric Wagner – Vocals

Doug Hakes – Guitar

Rico Bianchi – Guitar

Ben Smith – Bass

Larry Piatz – Drums

 

A promotional video for “All The Leaves Are Brown”, which can be purchased via Amazon and iTunes, is available below.

 

TROUBLE formed in 1979 and released several classic albums like “Trouble”, “Manic Frustration” and “Plastic Green Head”.

 

Eric was one of the guest singers on Dave Grohl’s (NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS) heavy metal side project PROBOT, whose 2004 album featured heavy metal vocalists from the ’80s and ’90s. Wagner also makes a guest appearance in the forthcoming horror film “Jezebeth” (written and directed by Damien Dante of Satania 6 Films), to be released on Blu-ray in early 2012.

 

Eric Wagner left TROUBLE in April 2008, citing his disdain for the touring life as the main reason for his departure.
