Have a burning question you’ve always wanted to ask SKELETONWITCH? Here’s your chance! Head over to Reddit’s IAmA page [http://www.reddit.com/r/metal] this coming Monday, August 26 at 7:00pm EST and ask away, as the entire band – vocalist Chance Garnette, guitarists Scott Hedrick and Nate Garnette, bassist Evan Linger and drummer Dustin Boltjes — will answer queries as part of a virtual Q&A.
In conjunction with SKELETONWITCH‘s forthcoming album, Serpents Unleashed, set for release in North America on October 29 via Prosthetic Records (October 28 EU/UK, October 25 Germany), the band will hit the road this Fall with The Black Dahlia Murder. The previously announced trek includes two new dates in El Paso and South Lake Tahoe and follows another bout of performances supporting Swedish occult rockers Ghost B.C. in addition to a pair of headlining gigs of their own. The band’s confirmed upcoming itinerary is listed below.
Hailed by Decibel as SKELETONWITCH‘s “best effort to date,” Serpents Unleashed was recorded earlier this year at GodCity Studio with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, High on Fire), who expertly channeled the band’s colossal live sound into eleven blasts of abominable, frosty fire. Serpents Unleashed features cover artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak), who returns to the ‘WITCH fold for the first time since 2007’s Beyond The Permafrost.
SKELETONWITCH recently unveiled “Burned From Bone” exclusively on SiriusXM’s “Liquid Metal with Jose” in addition to premiering behind-the-scenes studio footage of the song being recorded at with Ballou. A free download of “Burned From Bone” can be obtained for a limited time by texting SERPENTS to 24587. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available at http://www.skeletonwitch.com.
