Skeletonwitch Begin Recording New Album

(Prosthetic) Skeletonwitch hit the studio yesterday with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Machine Head, Kreator) to begin recording their new album.

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 member Dustin Boltjes.

Axe-man Scott Hedrick commented: "Waiting f***ing 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 f***ing 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 f***ing 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.

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.
