While Skeletonwitch wasn’t listed for the Orlando date of their tour with Amon Amarth and Enslaved when it was announced, the band is saying on Facebook they were actually banned from the happiest place on earth.
Disney reportedly would not allow the thrash metal outfit to play the January 27 date at the House of Blues stop of their tour with Enslaved and Amon Amarth. However, Amon Amarth and Enslaved are still booked for the gig and Mastodon song was featured during movie screenings of Monsters University this summer. Well we could guess why Skeletonwitch was not allowed on the bill, the choice against the horror metal outfit seems a bit random. However, Disney has arbitrarily banned Machine Head and Exodus in the past without any real reasoning.
And while the Magic Kingdom may not welcome Skeletonwitch, a couple about to celebrate their nuptials have. The band will perform a “happily-ever-after metal wedding,” November 15 in Fresno, Calif. Fans of the band Travis Bartlett and Lanae Forrest will get married on stage, Skeletwonwitch says on Facebook, making local the local venue “their own happiest place on Earth.”
