SkeleToon have announced the release of their third new ‘They Never Say Die’, a tribute to Eighties classic flick ‘The Goonies’ by Richard Donner/Steven Spielberg. With eleven guests taking over the main roles, ‘They Never Say Die’ is the third of five chapters in the band’s “Nerd Saga”, a fictional journey that goes way beyond a natural love for the “geek” world of cult movies, videogames and comics, to describe the world seen through the eyes of those forcibly removed from the masses because of their passions.
SkeleToon released their first album ‘The Curse Of The Avenger’ in 2016, while the second chapter ‘Ticking Clock’ was released the following year and featured notable guest appearances by Roland Grapow, Dennis Ward (Unisonic), Jonne Jarvela and Piet Sielck (Iron Savior) among others. Full tracklisting is as follows:
- Hoist Our Colors (feat. Ivan Castelli as “Capt. Jack Sparrow”)
- The Truffle Shuffle Army: Bizardly Bizarre (feat. Alessandro Conti as “Chunk”)
- To Leave A Land
- They Never Say Die
- Last Chance (feat. Michele Luppi as “Jake Fratelli”)
- I Have The Key (feat. Morby as “Chester Copperpot”)
- The Chain Master (feat. David Arredondo Gomez as “Sloth”)
- When Legends Turn Real (feat. Mark Basile as “One Eyed Willy”)
- Farewell (Avantasia Cover feat. Melissa Bonny)
- Goonies R Good Enough (Cindy Lauper cover feat. Giacomo Voli)

‘They Never Say Die’ has been recorded, mixed and mastered at Domination Studios by Simone Mularoni (DGM) and includes many special guests including Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Giacomo Voli (Rhapsody Of Fire), Morby (Domine) and Alessandro Conti (Trick Or Treat). The beautiful artwork has been made by Stan W. Decker (Primal Fear, Stryper, Ross The Boss, Jorn, Masterplan). The album will see the light of the day on February 8th.
