by Terry Stevens

Here's the press release.  Midwest tour dates highlighted for your convenience:

Additional dates added to upcoming tour with The Black Dahlia Murder 


Have a question you've always wanted to ask SKELETONWITCH? Here's your chance! Head over to Reddit's IAmA page (http://www.reddit.com/r/metal) on Monday (26) at 7 p.m. EST and ask away, as the entire band -- Chance Garnette (vocals), Scott Hedrick (guitars), Nate Garnette (guitars), Evan Linger (bass) -- and Dustin Boltjes (drums) -- will answer questions as part of a virtual Q&A.

Having recently announced an Oct. 29 release date for their highly anticipated fifth album "Serpents Unleashed" -- an album Decibel hails as "their best effort to date" -- SKELETONWITCH will hit the road this fall with The Black Dahlia Murder, a tour for which new dates in El Paso and South Lake Tahoe have been announced. Prior to that, SKELETONWITCH will once again support Ghost B.C. on the Swedish occult rock group's October headlining dates in addition to playing a pair of headline gigs of their own. The band's complete upcoming itinerary is listed below.

SKELETONWITCH recently unveiled "Burned From Bone," a new track from "Serpents Unleashed," exclusively on SiriusXM's "Liquid Metal with Jose" in addition to premiering behind-the-scenes studio footage of the song being recorded at GodCity Studio with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, High on Fire). A free download of "Burned From Bone" can be obtained for a limited time by texting SERPENTS to 24587. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available at www.skeletonwitch.com.

Ghost B.C. is one of those "See 'em before [they/you] die" bands.  Skeletonwitch is badass too.  Check out a couple tunes from both bands below.
