Skeletonwitch Banned From House Of Blues

Athens, Ohio-based blackened metal quintet Skeletonwitch has announced a hometown release party for new album, “Serpents Unleashed,” which will take place on the eve of the kickoff to an extensive North American fall tour with The Black Dahlia Murder.

Tickets for the event — which will take place at The Union (18 W. Union St., Athens) on October 23rd – are just $10.

The Black Dahlia tour will be quickly followed by another lap around America in early 2014, this time alongside Amon Amarth and Enslaved. Unfortunately for fans in Orlando — where the tour stops on Jan. 27 – Skeletonwitch will not be allowed to perform at the local House of Blues, as the group has joined the likes of Exodus, Machine Head, and others who have been deemed “unfit to be associated with” Disney, on whose property the venue is located.

Although Skeletonwitch might not be welcome at the Magic Kingdom, a California couple has asked the band to make their dreams come true. During the band’s live performance in Fresno on November 15, local fans Travis Bartlett and Lanae Forrest will get married on stage — making local venue Strummer’s their own happiest place on Earth.

Says groom-to-be Bartlett, “Lanae and I are taken aback and beyond elated that Skeletonwitch are willing to be a part of the most important day of our lives. There really aren’t words to show our appreciation for the band being with us as we begin our lives together.” More...

Skeletonwitch Releases New Music Video

Ten years ago today, brothers Nate and Chance Garnette joined forces with Scott Hedrick in a new band they opted to call Skeletonwitch.

A decade later, the blackened metal powerhouse commemorates the anniversary with the world premiere of the slasher/classic horror-themed music video for "I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived)," a new song from the group's fifth studio offering, "Serpents Unleashed."

Check out the video below, courtesy of Bloody Disgusting.

Comments Nate, "It's never a bad time when you combine 100 beers, several bloody sheep skulls, murder in the woods and five headbanging maniacs. It's an even better time when the end result is a killer classic/slasher video. This time we went with the 'even better time.' Enjoy!" More...
