2009 has been a stellar year for SKELETONWITCH, starting with skull crushing performances at the inaugural SCION ROCK FEST, SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST and the NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FEST. The band then went to Seattle WA to record their latest full length, “Breathing The Fire” with legendary producer, Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, Soundgarden). The album was released by PROSTHETIC RECORDS on October 13 and debuted at number 151 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and number 2 on the magazine’s “Heatseekers’ Chart.” Frontman, Chance Garnette, is on the cover of the current Terrorizer Magazine and the band have found themselves on countless “Best of 2009” lists.
