Ohio based blackened death thrash band Skeletonwitch have announced that they will begin recording a new album in April of 2013. At the helm will be Kurt Ballou of Converge fame with recording done at his GodCity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts.
Skeletonwitch had this to say about the album:
“First off, thanks to everyone who supported Skeletonwitch during this past year. We did some serious gigging in 2012, and your support on the road and of ‘Forever Abomination’ was overwhelming. We would be nowhere without you.
“It’s not just idle hands that do the devil’s work — we’re already deep in the process of writing a new record, which is shaping up to be quite an epic slab of metal, if we may say so ourselves.”
This will be Skeletonwitch’s fifth studio album and the follow up to 2011’s Forever Abomination. Right now the record is scheduled for release late in 2013 under Prosthetic Records. We’ll bring you more details when they are available.
