Skeletonwitch Premiering Official Video This Friday

Midwestern metal warriors SKELETONWITCH will premiere their debut music video, “Sacrifice For The Slaughtergod,” on Friday (Feb. 20), exclusively on MySpace Metal. The track comes from the group’s acclaimed Prosthetic Records debut, Beyond The Permafrost.

“It’s killer that the video is finally going to see the light of day,” says guitarist Scott Hedrick. “It’s also good to know that Mullet Chad, our drummer, and I didn’t spend an entire day covered in guts all for naught! We shot that thing months ago and just finally got rid of the gut-stink! I hope everyone enjoys the video. We had a great time shooting it and are proud of the final product.”

Even after playing more than 250 shows over the past two years – highlighted by a slot on Danzig’s Blackest of the Black North American tour last fall – Skeletonwitch won’t take time off any time soon. Soon after playing the inaugural Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta on Feb. 28, the group will team with labelmates Kylesa for the two-week Southern Discomfort tour, which includes a stop at South By Southwest. From there, the group will team with Swedish viking cult heroes Amon Amarth for a month-long tour.

“We’re fucking excited, as we’ve wanted to tour with Amon Amarth for a long time,” says guitarist Nate Garnette. “Now that it’s happening, we’ve taken to drinking our beer from horns and are concentrating on beard growth!”
