Skeletonwitch recruit Wolvhammer singer Clemans

Skeletonwitch have recruited Wolvhammer frontman Adam Clemans.

He’s been in the studio with the US outfit recording an as-yet-untitled EP which the band revealed they’d been working on earlier this week.

He’s been brought in to replace Chance Garnette who was fired from the band mid-tour in 2014 due to his alleged behaviour towards his bandmates offstage.

Clemans says: “I’ve been a fan of Skeletonwitch for a long time and those guys are really cool so it was a no brainer for me.

“They sent me a couple of songs, we demoed them and I ended up going to Ohio to hang out. Guitarist Nate Garnette wanted to make sure I could drink beer and not be a crazy person, which I don’t know if I achieved fully! It’s awesome. It’s going well so far.”

While he’s now part of the Skeletonwitch lineup, Clemans will also remain active with Wolvhammer, who are planning live dates and new material later this year.

Skeletonwitch will head out on the Decibel Magazine Tour with Abbath, High On Fire and Tribulation next month.

Further details on the EP release will be issued in due course.
