American metal demigods, SKELETONWITCH, who are currently on a U.K. tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, will join that same band on a U.S. tour this spring. After touring last fall with the likes of Arch Enemy, Devildriver, Kvelertak, Chimaira and more, this will mark the group’s first domestic tour of 2012.
Guitarist Scott Hedrick checks in with the following update: “We’re in the midst of shredding England with The Black Dahlia Murder, and it’s been a whirlwind of beer, booze, blast beats and kabobs! Most bands do a handful of U.K. shows; we’re doing 21. Either we’re onto something here or we’re fucking insane. Probably a bit of both… and it’s only going to get worse when we team up with Black Dahlia again in the States and throw Nile and Hour of Penance into the mix. Fucking stoked! Hope to see you there.

“Hyperbole aside, thanks to everyone who has supported Skeletonwitch. We love and live for the road and couldn’t do it without you! See you soon.”
