The band is currently in Europe supporting Between the Buried and Me following a string of shows as direct support to the Deftones. They will kick off an extensive North American tour alongside Between The Buried And Me on Oct. 27. A complete list of upcoming dates can be found below in the tour section.
Ohio’s SKELETONWITCH have launched the track “Reduced to the Failure of Prayer” from their upcoming album “Forever Abomination” at ForeverAbomination.com. The track premiered late last week on Sirius/XM’s Liquid Metal, where it is now in rotation and can be requested at their Facebook page.
The band, who just returned from a European tour that included stops at the Wacken, Bloodstock, Summer Breeze and Party.San festivals, is now back on the road in North America with DevilDriver en route to Thursday’s kickoff of a month long tour with Arch Enemy. Guitarist Scott Hedrick checks in: “No rest for the wicked!!! We landed on U.S. soil after 3 weeks of playing festivals in Europe and we hit the ground running. We had just enough time to do some laundry and pile back into the van. Right now we’re in the midst of some support shows with DevilDriver, who we haven’t seen since last year’s Ozzfest. Great fucking dudes! The shows have been killer and are only going to get better, as we’re meeting up with Arch Enemy and Chthonic in a few days. Come out, rage, and then have a beer with us!”
“Forever Abomination” will be issued in three formats: digital download; a six-panel, plastic-free digipak; and a triple-gatefold LP (which in turn will be available in several color variants). More details and pre-order are available at ForeverAbomination.com. The album features artwork by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Holy Grail, Cannabis Corpse), who also contributed the cover art for the band’s 2009 release, Breathing The Fire. Forever Abomination will be released internationally on the following dates:
Mainland Europe: October 7
United Kingdom: October 10
North America: October 11
Japan: October 19
