SKELETONWITCH Announce Limited 7″ Trilogy

Blackened thrash overloads SKELETONWITCH have announced a limited-edition 7″ trilogy via Prosthetic Records. The band recently re-recorded three tracks from their long out-of-print debut, “At One With The Shadows,” for this series. Each edition will have one of those tracks, 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 their upcoming “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 be hitting the road next week with labelmates Withered and Landmine Marathon on the “North American Skullsplitter Tour 2010.” They will wrap up the year by supporting Job For A Cowboy.

The record debuted at #151 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #2 on the magazine’s Heatseekers Chart. 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.
