Skeletonwitch Begin Recording New Album

Prosthetic Records

Metal heathens Skeletonwitch recently began recording their fifth album with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Black Breath) at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass.

Tentatively set for a fall release, the as-yet-untitled recording is the follow-up to 2011’s “masterclass in modern metal” (Terrorizer) “Forever Abomination,” the group’s second consecutive album to crack the Billboard Top 200. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Last month, Skeletonwitch headlined Pitchfork’s “Show No Mercy” showcase at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, where they debuted a brand new song. You can view their entire performance, which starts around the 1:40 mark, here. The band, who spent most of 2012 touring (including a rigorous 10-week headlining run during which they played 63 shows in 65 days), will headline the Calgary Metal Fest in June. Further information and tickets can be found at

Stay tuned to the band’s Facebook ( for behind-the-scenes info and a tour announcement in the coming days.
