SKELETONWITCH: Rare Track Available For Streaming

"Tragedy Of Days", a rare track from Ohio metal goliaths SKELETONWITCH, can be streamed 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 (October 2011 issue) as well as the Japanese edition of "Forever Abomination".

Comments SKELETONWITCH guitarist Scott Hedrick: "'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."

The new vinyl reissues of the SKELETONWITCH's breakthrough releases "Breathing The Fire" and "Beyond The Permafrost" are now shipping from the Prosthetic store. Both are available in three variants — splatter, half-and-half and 180-gram black wax — and feature gatefold Stoughton "tip-on" record jackets. The black vinyl versions of both albums will be available in select retail stores on April 10.

SKELETONWITCH is currently setting stage 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 in support of "Forever Abomination". The band will take a brief break before heading overseas for a stretch of European dates.
