Athens, Ohio's blackened thrash warlords Skeletonwitch will start July by doing some of their own shows en route to Vancouver, BC, where they'll meet up with High On Fire for a cross Canadian trek. The tour will culminate with the band appearing at the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, along with Slayer, Alice Cooper, Megadeth, Mastodon, and more. The band will then head out with Ozzfest where they'll be appearing on the second stage along with former tour partners Goatwhore and Saviious, and other acts.

Guitarist Scott Hedrick commented on the band's plans; "Just when you thought Skeletonwitch couldn't get any heavier we're going to eat a metric ton of bread, cheese, and beer in Europe! Fuck yes! We're heading across the pond w/ Warbringer and are being joined by Angelus Apatrida. It'll be a true 'European Bangover.' Of course, that is directly following the juggernaut of American heavy music festivals, Ozzfest, which we are proud to be a part of. The opportunity to play alongside greats such as Ozzy and Rob Halford is a bit of a mindfuck for us. It's going to be a blast.

"Since I seem to be working in reverse.......We're kicking off our summer touring in July with High on Fire, Russian Circles, and Priestess in Canada. It's going to be a lot of metal, a lot of traveling, and a lot of drinking, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Black t-shirt, white van. Heavy metal on the road. Thanks to everyone for the support! Come out and see us. We'll party!"

In other news, Skeletonwitch just completed a video for the track, "Submit to the Suffering" with director Don Tyler (Mastodon, Ringworm).
