Skeletonwitch are a band we've always liked here at Scribes. As a result we're delighted to announced that Skeletonwitch will be returning to the UK next year as part of a huge European tour to take place in April and the beginning of May 2015.
Alongside the Ohio thrash / death metal outfit, NOLA, black / death metal maestros Goatwhore will be coming along for the ride, serving as main support to Skeletonwitch for the entire duration of the tour. Brooklyn metallers Mortals will serve as opening band for the trek. Goatwhore are very pleased to be returning to Europe having only recently been here with Dying Fetus, as can be seen by the band's statement about the tour:
"After being part of a really successful European and UK tour with Dying Fetus, Malevolence and Fallujah for the last 6 weeks, I am really stoked to be returning in April with our good friends in Skeletonwitch & Mortals to offer another dose of Extreme Metal to our European and UK fans. This will be a crushing experience to all that attend. We would like to thank everyone that attended the shows in November & December. See you in 2015!"
