Athens, Ohio’s SKELETONWITCH are proud to be announced as part of this year’s Blackest of the Black Tour alongside Danzig, Dimmu Borgir, Moonspell and Winds of Plague. SKELETONWITCH guitarist Scott Hedrick comments: "Cheers and beers, heshers!!! Here's a quick SKELETONWITCH update; proof that we've been doing SOMETHING since returning from Europe (besides gorging on Taco Bell). As you may have read, we're privileged to be a part of this year's Blackest of the Black Tour. We are beyond stoked to be a part of this killer lineup. About six years ago, I can recall [SKELETONWITCH guitarist] Nate one Halloween half shit-canned, with half a 30-pack, and a Marshall half-stack, standing on his roof playing Danzig riffs. Back then we certainly never thought we'd have an opportunity like this!! A huge thanks goes out to Danzig for inviting us to be a part of this tour. Please come out early and check out our set.

"Also, in early August we're hitting the road with Valient Thorr and Early Man, as well as playing several solo dates. Check out our MySpace page for dates, new live footage and video interviews. Hope those dudes are ready to party, and we hope to see you out on the road. As always, thanks to everyone who has supported THE WITCH!”

SKELETONWITCH continues to support the band’s Prosthetic Records debut, "Beyond The Permafrost," which saw an October 2007 release and features artwork from Baroness’ John Baizley and production courtesy of Corey Smoot (Municipal Waste, GWAR). The record is the follow-up to the band’s self-released EP, "Worship The Witch." Recently returning from a European tour alongside Hate Eternal, Cephalic Carnage, and Deaborn in May and June, having already toured Stateside this year with the likes of Hate Eternal, Soilent Green, Arsis, A Life Once Lost, Job For A Cowboy, The Red Chord, and more, in addition to a busy 2007 on the road.
