Skeletonwitch Interview

1. Hey how are you doing how is everything? You guys threw together a killer set tonight, how's that been going being the openers and all.....


2. How's it going overall on the Blackest of Black Tour?


3. Do you feel you are portraying a message to the masses that we can all relate to?

Scott: Yes/no, no because we're not bringing this political message or anything just drink beer and bang your head and have a good time. Forget about whatever's bumming you out, and a lot of hot chicks to look at just drink and have a good time. Just having fun whatever is bringing you down just bang your head and enjoy metal music. That's what's its all about.

4. Do you have any favorite tracks off any of your albums?

Band: "Limb From Limb," "Baptize and Flames," the ones that we don't play are the ones we love, and the ones we play in the set of course. You got to cram a lot into a 20 minute set.

5. If you could switch lives with anyone for 24 hours who would it be and why?

Drummer: Some real hot celebrity lady. *Band Laughs*

6. What is music for you? Does it bring you some new emotions or it helps you to get ride of some negative emotions?

Band: We just play because we love it and it helps get rid of all types of emotions in general whether we're angry or sad whatever ya know it's just the way music works.

7. So, at what point on a tour do you get fed up and say "Fuck this. I want to sleep in my own bed and I want to shower in my own bath." At what point do you get to where you just can't handle it anymore, where you're done with it and it's time to go home? Do you ever get like that when you're on the road, or is the whole thing always exciting?

Band: Maybe for like 5 minutes or so but there are times where you do think that you don't want to go through with it but you get over it and go want to rock out and just play music and play a killer show.

8. How was your Halloween, do anything crazy or exciting?

Band: We did we played with Glen Danzig, in Kansas City, seeing a lot of Misfits Brides and crazy people walking around.

9. If you were interviewing yourself, what question would you ask yourself? And what would the answer be?

Derrick: I'm always asked this but never know what to say....

10. What idea came to made when creating "Beyond The Permafrost" what's the main theme of this album, is it any different than your 2004 release?

Band: Not really much of a theme, but something beyond, going beyond the frost going colder as could possibly get... Not really much different. More focused and worked on as a whole better processed.

11. What are the future plans for Skeletonwitch?

Scott: Finishing this tour, and then go do a headlining tour in Spring and focusing on writing new material for the next record.

12. What's it like playing alongside Danzig, and the other bands on this tour, getting along?

Band: KILLER, get to see it everynight, and most people only get to see it like once, so its awesome. At times I do get nervous being around the guy but its a great honor and pretty awesome to witness his performance every single night. And he said he loved the record which is really awesome!

13. How did the name Skeletonwitch come about?

Derrick: Friend of ours Ted, that he played in previous Skeletonwtich, and then he came up with it and thought it was weird and then we fell in love with it. That's about it really.

14. Is there any band that you would want to tour with?

Band: Immortal, Goatwhore,Kreator,Judas Priest, Iron Maiden,Slayer,
Evan : I'd shit if I got to go out on tour with Immortal!

15. Thanks for doing this interview, any other thoughts or comments?

Scott: We'd like to thank everyone/anyone who came out on this tour and supported us.
Chance: Everyone who has our record, bought, stole, downloaded it whatever, thanks!
