Ohio metal goliaths Skeletonwitch are streaming "new" track "Tragedy of Days" at Prosthetic Records' official bandcamp page here (or check out the track in the player below). Never formally released on record in the States, the tune was recorded during the "Forever Abomination" sessions with producer Matt Hyde and appeared on the Decibel Magazine Flexi-Disc series (Oct. 2011 issue) as well as the Japanese edition of Forever Abomination.

Comments guitarist Scott Hedrick of the track: "'Tragedy of Days' was an epic instrumental by [guitarist] Nate [Garnette]'s former band Serkesoron. They disbanded after the untimely passing of Serkesoron's frontman, Thom Wright. Shortly after the band called it quits, Skeletonwitch was born. We re-recorded the track and Chance [Garnette] added vocals as a tribute to Thom, immortalizing him in song."

Additionally, the band recently unveiled a new video for the song "The Infernal Resurrection." To view the clip, which documents the band in live pillage mode in Europe, head over to Metal Injection.

Skeletonwitch is currently setting stages ablaze on tour alongside The Black Dahlia Murder, Nile and labelmates Hour Of Penance. This marks the group's first North American tour action of 2012. The band will take a brief break before heading overseas for a stretch of European dates.
