SKELETONWITCH Announces Limited-Edition Seven-Inch Trilogy

Blackened thrash overloads SKELETONWITCH have announced a limited-edition seven-inch trilogy via Prosthetic Records. The band recently re-recorded three tracks from its long-out-of-print debut "At One With The Shadows" for this series. Each edition will have one of those songs, as well as another rarity, and feature artwork by drummer Derrick "Mullet Chad" Nau. The first installment, limited to 500 copies on gold vinyl and coinciding with the launch of SKELETONWITCH's "Skullsplitter" headlining tour, features the songs "At One With The Shadows" and "Bringers of Death". Cartoon Network's Adult Swim recently shot a video for "Bringers of Death", which was originally an overseas bonus track on the band's 2007 album "Beyond the Permafrost". This is the first time the track will be available physically in North America.

Order your copy now; records will start shipping next Monday. The second installment will hit in early 2011.

Guitarist Scott Hedrick commented, "At the moment, we're busy as hell forging new metal for our next release and gearing up for our headlining tour with WITHERED and LANDMINE MARATHON. So, as we look toward the future, we thought it would be fun to release a few tracks from the past.

"We often get requests for these songs and are happy to have them back in print, complete with new artwork from our drummer, Mullet Chad. You can get them online from Prosthetic, and of course, we'll have them for sale at all of our upcoming tour dates while they last. Get 'em quick, because they're extremely limited!"

SKELETONWITCH will hit the road next week with labelmates WITHERED and LANDMINE MARATHON as part of the "North American Skullsplitter Tour 2010". They will wrap up the year by supporting JOB FOR A COWBOY.

SKELETONWITCH is continuing to support its latest album, "Breathing the Fire", which was recorded in Seattle with legendary producer Jack Endino (NIRVANA, HIGH ON FIRE, SOUNDGARDEN). The record debuted at No. 151 on The Billboard 200 chart and No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. Over the past year, the group has toured alongside such heavy metal luminaries as CHILDREN OF BODOM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, CANNIBAL CORPSE and HIGH ON FIRE, in addition to delivering standout performances on the second stage of this year's Ozzfest.
