Heavy metallers Skeletonwitch have announced that they will return with their first new album in four years come spring time. The band is currently working with the prolific producer Kurt Ballou who has worked with Chelsea Wolfe, High On Fire, Kvelertak and is perhaps better known as the guitarist of Converge. The album is being recorded at Ballou's GodCity Studio and then will be mixed by Fredrik Nordström in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The new album has been written over the course of years, between Ohio and New York. It will be the first record to feature new singer Adam Clemans. Skeletonwitch's guitarist Scott Hedrick commented, "It feels great to be back in GodCity Studio! Those in the know are aware that working with Kurt Ballou ensures incredible sonics. We're very comfortable working with Kurt which has allowed us to stretch out into some new territory. We're excited for people to hear the new stuff."
Last year, Skeletonwitch refined its lineup to include Clemans, a move that has resulted in making the band stronger than ever. The Apothic Gloom EP was also released last year and was a massive leap forward in the band's songwriting so expect good things for this full-length!
