On the heels of their show-stealing performances last month on Ozzfest's second stage, Ohio's SKELETONWITCH have announced a fall headlining tour. The "North American Skullsplitter Tour 2010" will see the blackened-thrash animals supported by labelmates WITHERED and LANDMINE MARATHON.
SKELETONWITCH's Scott Hedrick commented, "We live for the road, so after six weeks of writing the next record, it's going to be great to get back on the stage, basement floor, your mother's house... whatever! Perhaps we'll break out some new tunes. We'll definitely break out some beers! It's also killer to tour with two other Prosthetic bands. Keeping it in the family!"
Singer/guitarist Mike Thompson from WITHERED, who will be joining the run late due to touring commitments with DANZIG, added, "We are really looking forward to the dates we're doing with our friends SKELETONWITCH. It's been a few years since we've gone out with them, so we've got a lot of ridiculousness to make up for. Life never ceases to surprise."
LANDMINE MARATHON's Ryan Butler commented, "We're ecstatic to be touring with our friends in SKELETONWITCH. It's gonna be an absolute blast. We're also extremely excited to be hitting a lot of cities that LANDMINE has never played before and looking forward to gaining fans and friends in those areas. A very metal time will be had by all!"
In addition, SKELETONWITCH has been confirmed as the headliner of the 4th Annual All Hallows Eve Fest, taking place at The Backstage in Chillicothe, Ohio on Oct. 23. The band, currently wrapping up their "European Bangover Tour," also recently posted the first installment of a video tour diary at Metal Injection. Check it out now!
