Skeletonwitch wrap up EP studio work

Skeletonwitch have completed recording their forthcoming EP.

The Ohio band’s as-yet-untitled record will feature their new vocalist, whose name will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Skeletonwitch fired vocalist Chance Garnette mid-tour in 2014 due to his alleged behaviour towards his bandmates offstage, and continued to play the remaining dates as a four-piece.

The band are also set to perform on the Decibel Magazine Tour with Abbath, High On Fire and Tribulation next month.

Skeletonwitch guitarist Scott Hedrick says: “All three artists are in my personal top tier of heavy music. Definitely going to have some embarrassing ‘fan moments’ on this one.

“Just ask Matt Pike of High On Fire – as an overly excited teenager, I punished him with a game of 20 questions when I saw them on their first US tour. He still regrets giving me his phone number.

“New tunes, new singer, new tour, new chapter for Skeletonwitch. Looking forward to seeing you all out on the road.”

Skeletonwitch released fifth album Serpents Unleashed in 2013.
