SKELETONWITCH Premiere Second New Track

Skeletonwitch Ohio's SKELETONWITCH have launched the track "Reduced to the Failure of Prayer" from their upcoming album, Forever Abomination, at You can listen below.

The band, who just returned from a European tour that included stops at the Wacken, Bloodstock, Summer Breeze and Party.San festivals, is now back on the road in North America with DevilDriver en route to Thursday's kickoff of a month long tour with Arch Enemy. Guitarist Scott Hedrick checks in: "No rest for the wicked!!! We landed on U.S. soil after 3 weeks of playing festivals in Europe and we hit the ground running. We had just enough time to do some laundry and pile back into the van. Right now we're in the midst of some support shows with DevilDriver, who we haven't seen since last year's Ozzfest. Great fucking dudes! The shows have been killer and are only going to get better, as we're meeting up with Arch Enemy and Chthonic in a few days. Come out, rage, and then have a beer with us!"
