Athens, Ohio's SKELETONWITCH will release its new album, "Forever Abomination", on October 11 via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2009's "Breathing The Fire" was recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR). The effort will include the track "The Infernal Resurrection", the demo version of which appears as the B-side on the final seven-inch of a limited-edition vinyl trilogy. This marks SKELETONWITCH's first recording with the group's new drummer, former DEMIRICOUS skin-pounder Dustin Boltjes.

SKELETONWITCH will take part in a fall North American tour alongside ARCH ENEMY, DEVILDRIVER and CHTHONIC, and has just confirmed "off-date" shows along with DEVILDRIVER. The band will play several Midwestern shows next week, before heading to Europe for a run of dates which include performances at several of the continent's biggest metal festivals.

SKELETONWITCH's latest album, "Breathing the Fire" (2009), debuted at No. 151 on The Billboard 200 chart and No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. It was SKELETONWITCH's second full-length release for Prosthetic Records, with whom the band recently extended its recording deal.

If they had an LA off-date I'd go. Looking forward to the album though!

No LA off date, just one with Arch Enemy at the Nokia.

Sweeeeet. Seeing them play with Obscura next week, which is the first show they've done in a while and a local precursor before their Arch Enemy run, so hopefully, we'll be the first ones to hear a new song! :party::party::party:

Really excited for this. Beyond The Permafrost and Breathing The Fire were top 10 albums for me in their respective years of release.

That sentence doesn't make sense, you see, because it is impossible for Skeletonwitch to suck.

This. Not because they're one of the best bands ever, but because they basically do one thing and are good at it, and I can't imagine saying any of their stuff sucks. Unimaginative, non-wheel-reinventing, whatever...fine. Sucks? Nah, brah.

Oh thank God, I thought you were mentally deficient for a sec.

Couldn't agree more. They're a one trick pony, but they make that one trick sexy as hell.

For fuck sakes Arch Enemy, stop taking Chthonic on every damn tour. They suck. Learn this.

...I know sarcasm is hard to convey through text, but you could've done a better job than "I've already heard it and it sucks." :tp:

well, why would I mention that they played a new song, then post name of said song if I didn't like them in the first place?
