SKELETONWITCH Announce North American Tour Dates

Ohio metal heathens SKELETONWITCH have announced plans to demolish North America this summer on a headlining tour, which will also feature classic rockers Barnburner (Metal Blade Records). The tour, which includes two weeks’ worth of dates in Canada, will commence July 17 in York, Pennsylvania soon after the band return from a European tour during which they will play festivals alongside the likes of Slayer, Megadeth, and Behemoth. Complete dates are listed below.

SKELETONWITCH, who recently toured North America alongside The Black Dahlia Murder, will be out in support of their latest album Forever Abomination, as well as the recent vinyl reissues of their popular releases Breathing The Fire and Beyond The Permafrost. Each LP is available in three different options – splatter, half-and-half and 180-gram black wax – and features gatefold Stoughton “tip-on” record jackets.

Like Satan himself set loose in the hallowed halls of heavy metal, SKELETONWITCH careen wildly through the music’s history, gleefully destroying and setting flame to every genre along the way, only stopping at the forefront of today’s metal scene to look back and watch that fucker burn – and then piss on the flames. No other band has tapped into the fire, fury, and frost of all things metal. Worship the ‘WITCH!
