Quantcast

Skeletonwitch to release new album later this year

Posted by on March 18, 2015

Skeletonwitch will be hitting the road in support of their 2013 album Serpents Unleashed, playing festivals in Europe starting next month. That will close out the touring cycle for the album, and they plan on hitting the studio to record the album’s follow-up immediately afterwards for a release later this year. Guitarist Scott Hedrick commented on the album:

“After we return from melting faces in Europe, our entire focus will be on writing a new album. We have a mountain of riffs and ideas that will be carved into epic tunes.  Excited to get started!”

There’s no word yet on who will be producing the album, where it will be recorded, or really anything more about it other than the fact that it’s expected to be out before the end of the year. The band’s tour dates will take them to Roadburn and Inferno, and they’ll be headlining 26 shows in Europe with support from Goatwhore and Mortals. Here’s where you’ll be able to catch them:
