Skeletonwitch Serpents Unleashed

Although their busy fall itinerary (which includes tours alongside Ghost B.C. and The Black Dahlia Murder) is their immediate focus, metal heathens SKELETONWITCH are already looking ahead to 2014, and are excited to announce their first tour of the new year — a month-long trek alongside Amon Amarth and Enslaved that will take the Ohio quintet to many markets they will not hit in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale this Friday. A complete list of the group’s upcoming concerts appears below.

Says guitarist Scott Hedrick, “We forged a friendship with Amon Amarth about five years ago when we first toured together and have had the chance to hang with Enslaved at European festivals. We’re fans of both bands, and all those guys rule. It takes a tour to another level when there’s that much camaraderie, and we can’t think of a better way to tour ‘Serpents Unleashed’ this winter. Good bands, good beards, and (hopefully) good beers. See you guys soon!”

Recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Isis, Kvelertak) earlier this year, the album — which will be available in CD, LP, cassette, digital download and limited-edition 7-inch collector’s box formats — will be released in North America on Oct. 29, in Australia and G/A/S (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) on Oct. 25 and in the UK and the rest of Europe on Oct. 28. You can still text SERPENTS to 24587 to get a free download of the song, but if you’re jonesing for more, a new track from “Serpents Unleashed” — hailed by Decibel as the band’s “best effort to date” — will premiere on “Liquid Metal with Jose” on SiriusXM channel 40 today between 3-9 p.m. EST, and the world premiere of the group’s newest music video will take place tomorrow. Stay tuned for details.
