Ohio-based metal heathens SKELETONWITCH, whose rigorous 2012 tour schedule was capped off by a marathon 10-week U.S. tour last fall, will perform at select festivals in the coming weeks. First, the band will make an exclusive appearance at Austin‘s prestigious South By Southwest (SXSW) festival as headliners for Pitchfork’s annual Show No Mercy showcase on Wednesday, March 13, where they will perform at the House of Vans at Mohawk at 5:30 pm alongside acts such as Pallbearer, Trash Talk, Royal Thunder and labelmates (and recent tourmates) MUTILATION RITES.
A free download of the band’s song This Horrifying Force (The Desire To Kill) is available for the next 30 days via NPR’s “The Austin 100,” which features 100 songs by artists to discover at this year’s SXSW, by clicking HERE.
Soon after SXSW, the band will head to GodCity Studios in Salem, Massachusettes with acclaimed producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Black Breath) to record their highly anticipated new album, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2011 release Forever Abomination which cracked Billboard’s Top 200 and landed the band a cover feature in Decibel Magazine. A fall release is expected.
SKELETONWITCH have also been confirmed to headline the 2013 Calgary Metal Fest, set to take place at Dickens Pub in June; additional details can be found at CalgaryMetalFest.com.
