Skeletonwitch - Begins Tracking New Record

Skeletonwitch entered a Los Angeles studio yesterday (Wednesday June 1st) with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Machine Head, Kreator) to begin recording the follow up to 2009's Breathing The Fire.

The as-yet-untitled album, expected to be released this fall, features the track "The Infernal Resurrection," the demo version of which appears as the B-side on the soon-to-be-released final 7-inch of a limited-edition vinyl trilogy. This will mark the first recording with their new drummer, former Demiricous skin-pounder Dustin Boltjes.

Commented axe-man Scott Hedrick: "Waiting fucking sucks! So, after months of writing, it's great to finally be in the studio tracking the new album. It's not rocket science... it's epic, it's brutal, it's fucking Skeletonwitch! We can't wait for everyone to hear it.

We'd also like to officially welcome aboard our newest member Dustin Boltjes. He's a great fucking dude and an animal behind the kit. We couldn't have found a better fit. Welcome aboard, brother!"

After finishing tracking, the band will head to Europe for a run of dates which will include stops at several festivals. As reported yesterday on MetalSucks, the band will be participating in a fall North American tour along with Chthonic and two other bands, which will be announced on the site in the coming days.
