Skeletonwitch Taps Jack Endino As Producer

Midwestern metal warriors SKELETONWITCH, who are currently touring alongside Amon Amarth, will begin recording their as-yet-untitled new album with producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, Toxic Holocaust) on June 14. The record will be tracked in Seattle at both Studio Litho (owned by Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard) and Endino's own Soundhouse Recording.

"We're stoked to be working with Jack 'and Dino' Endino," says guitarist Nate Garnette. "We hope he will help us achieve a sound that is more natural, organic and powerful, as he did with High on Fire. The new material is coming along great. We can't wait to see it come to fruition!"

Throughout the first few months of 2009, SKELETONWITCH has continued to tour extensively in support of its latest album, "Beyond The Permafrost." In recent weeks, the group delivered a show-stealing performance at the inaugural Scion Rock Fest, played multiple South By Southwest (SXSW) showcases with labelmates Kylesa and crossed the country with Amon Amarth.

"Scion was fucking killer!" Garnett says. "It was one of the best festival lineups of the last 10 years, the organizers treated all the bands like kings and we got to hang out with some good friends in Baroness, Toxic Holocaust, High on Fire and Withered." More...

Included among Southern Discomfort’s destinations is a stop in Austin, Tex., where both bands will appear at South By Southwest (SXSW). Special guest Black Tusk will lend support nightly with their heavy metal punk ‘n’ roll mayhem.

SKELETONWITCH is currently hard at work on the follow-up to 2007’s much-acclaimed "Beyond the Permafrost." The new record is scheduled for a late 2009 release. Meanwhile, KYLESA’s new slab of psychedelic heft, “Static Tensions,” drops on March 17. A new song, “Said And Done,” is currently streaming at the band's MySpace page.
