Skeletonwitch Premiere New Song “When Paradise Fades”

Skeletonwitch have premiered a new song titled “When Paradise Fades,” via Kerrang!. You can stream that HERE. Nate Garnette describes the track as “a supercharged nano-epic that takes you from greasy rock n roll, to off-the-rails blackened destruction and beyond.” He went on to say he “tried to keep the intensity and grit front-and-center while making it a journey instead of a two-minute banger.” The band’s new album “Devouring Radiant Light,” will be released on July 20.

Skeletonwitch Premiere New Song “Fen Of Shadows”, Reveal Details For New Album “Devouring Radiant Light”

Skeletonwitch have premiered a new song titled “Fen Of Shadows.” This track is from the band’s new album “Devouring Radiant Light,” which will be released on July 20. Guitarist Scott Hedrick says the song is “Skeletonwitch 2.0” and that it “travels further down the rabbit hole with more elaborate arrangements, layers of wailing guitar, and strong dynamic shifts. It’s the most fully-formed example of what this band has become.” Vocalist Adam Clemans also added that the track “sets up the theme for the entire record. It’s of my belief that in times of turmoil and darkness, we as humans, learn the most about our true selves. If you look within, you will always find light, passion and dedication. To what exactly, is up to the individual. For us, it’s creating music together and as individuals.” As previously reported, the group parted ways with drummer Dustin Boltjes last month and have since recruited Jon Rice (ex-Job For A Cowboy) for now.

“At this time, we feel it’s necessary to inform everyone that Skeletonwitch has parted ways with Dustin Boltjes.

“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.”
