SKELETONWITCH has “When Paradise Fades”, the second track from their album, Devouring Radiant Light due out July 20th. The band’s guitarist Nate Garnette calls it journey, the kind that is “a supercharged nano-epic that takes you from greasy rock n roll, to off-the-rails blackened destruction and beyond.”
Listen to “When Paradise Fades” below.
Since their formation in 2003, SKELETONWITCH have been known for blending and subverting metal subgenres. The members’ collective love of Judas Priest, classic-era Metallica and Immortal has always been evident, however, it’s the band’s blacker leanings that have shifted to the forefront of this latest offering.
Devouring Radiant Light was recorded by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Kvelertak, Chelsea Wolfe) at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. The band’s developed a friendly rapport with Ballou that provided the familiarity necessary to embrace uncharted creative territory.
SKELETONWITCH will tour Europe in support of Devouring Radiant Light starting this month. U.S. fall dates with System of a Down and At The Drive-In have also been confirmed. Check out the U,S. list below and keep an eye out for more forthcoming dates .
