DNA Lounge & FTB Present
Skeletonwitch’s vicious live show and fierce blue-collar work ethic have garnered them a dedicated fan base, including some of the genre’s biggest names such as Rob Halford, Phil Anselmo, Bill Ward and Robb Flynn, to name a few. They were also handpicked by Glenn Danzig for his 2008 Blackest of the Black tour, and have also logged countless miles on the road in the U.S., Canada and Europe with the likes of Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, Children of Bodom, High on Fire and The Black Dahlia Murder. The band has also made high-profile appearances at several festivals, including the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in 2008, 2010 and 2011, the 2010 Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta (along with Mastodon, High on Fire, etc.), South By Southwest, Ozzfest, Wacken, Summer Breeze and more.
Skeletonwitch formed in 2003 and self-released their debut full-length, At One With the Shadows, the following year. In 2006, after several underground tours, the band broke through musically with the self-released EP Worship the Witch (which included a limited, handmade edition by Baroness’ John Baizley). Worship the Witch peaked label interest, and in 2007, the band signed with Prosthetic Records and released Beyond the Permafrost, which received numerous accolades in the U.S. and overseas and landed on many year-end “Best Of” lists including Revolver, Decibel, and Pitchfork. The album also cracked the Top 10 of the CMJ Loud Rock Chart. Their follow up full-length Breathing the Fire, released in 2009 and produced by Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana), landed at #151 on the Billboard Top 200, received glowing reviews throughout the metal community and landed on numerous “Best Of” lists.
