Whether you remember him from Marilyn Manson, Shotgun Messiah, KMFDM, or OhGr, Tim Skold is back!  Ready to realese his first album in 15 years SKOLD will release Anomie on May 10th.

SKOLD on Anomie:
“It really is completely self indulgent wankery, but that goes for just about every record I’ve ever liked. I don’t want people to expect anything from me, I promise only to remain defiantly and completely untrustworthy.”

“To me, Anomie definitely feels like a continuation (of his 1996 self-titled solo album), but since I spent a lot of time doing other things, it is, for all intents and purposes, a new beginning,” Tim continues. A fully self-sufficient recording entity, SKOLD is a very personal project and Anomie was something that fulfills his own personal desires. “I really like the word ‘anomie’ and think it applies to me both on a personal and creative level but most of all I think it describes my music and how I make my music. There is absolutely no collaboration on this album whatsoever. The ‘drummer’ (me) hates the ‘guitar player’ (me). The ‘singer’ (me) refuses to do more than one take and the ‘bass player’ (me) is out doing other shit while the ‘Producer’ (me) really just wants to kill them all. It’s a very sick affair.”
