Skeletonwitch to release new album in July, unveil first single “Fen of Shadows”

Posted by on April 26, 2018

Skeletonwitch have announced their upcoming album Devouring Radiant Light will finally arrive on July 20th via Prosthetic Records. It’s been five years since 2013’s Serpents Unleashed, and this time around, the group will unlock their darker sense of style as they brought black metal arrangements to the limelight.

Today (26th), the group unveiled the first single “Fen of Shadows.”

Guitarist Scott Hedrick described the song as:

“Skeletonwitch 2.0… the song travels further down the rabbit hole with more elaborate arrangements, layers of wailing guitar, and strong dynamic shifts. It’s the most fully-formed example of what this band has become.”

New vocalist Adam Clemans added:

“Sets up the theme for the entire record. It’s of my belief that in times of turmoil and darkness, we as humans, learn the most about our true selves. If you look within, you will always find light, passion and dedication. To what exactly, is up to the individual. For us, it’s creating music together and as individuals.”
