Voodoo Glow Skulls


Voodoo Glow Skulls were formed in 1988 by Eddie Casillas, Jorge Casillas, Jerry O’Neill and Frank Casillas. After a few years of backyard party shows, cassette demos, 7” singles and first club gigs, they released their debut album “Who is, this is?” for Dr. Strange records in 1993, gaining the attention of Brett Gurewitz, owner of Epitaph records. The band then signed to Epitaph records and released four albums, starting in 1995 with “Firme”, their most successful album to date, followed by “Baile de los Locos”, “Band Geek Mafia” and “Symbolic”.

 The band began to tour worldwide with their first European tour in 1996 followed by Japan, Australia, Mexico, and South America.

The band has been featured on several of Epitaph’s Punk-O-Rama releases and has had music featured in video games, TV and movies.

The song “Shoot the Moon” from the band’s “Firme” album was used in the Pauly Shore movie Bio-Dome and the band’s version of “Used to Love Her” (originally written and recorded by Guns N’ Roses) is featured in the Mr. & Mrs. Smith soundtrack.

In 2002, Voodoo Glow Skulls signed to Victory Records. The band released three albums on the Victory label and continued to tour.

On January 18, 2012, the band released its self-produced ninth album, Break the Spell, through Smelvis Records.

In June, 2017, Frank Casillas announced his retirement from the band and was replaced by Efrem Schulz. 

In May 2021, the band released “Livin’ The Apocalypse” with Efrem Schulz and continues to do shows.
