Rick Wartell of Trouble Announces Artist Endorsement with Empress Effects
"As a musician, I'm always looking for new ways to enhance my guitar tone, and incorporate new technology into my rig. Trouble is definitely known for our signature sound, so I'm looking forward to hearing how Empress Effects complements our music in the recording studio, as well as our live performances,"
Trouble is currently writing their tenth studio album, a follow-up to "The Distortion Field" which was released in July 2013 and featured new singer Kyle Thomas.

Trouble is an American metal band noted as one of the pioneers of their genre. The band created a distinct style taking influences of the British heavy metal bands Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, and psychedelic rock of the 1970s. A critically acclaimed group, their first two albums, Psalm 9 and The Skull are cited as landmarks of doom metal. Trouble has toured in 23 countries, played legendary festivals, and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in metal.
