Skeletonwitch's music may be dark, brutal and extreme, but offstage their members have a soft spot for animals. As pet owners themselves, they are showing support for a couple of animal related charities with a limited edition, hand-screened 180-gram vinyl edition of their 2013 album 'Serpents Unleashed.'
In their decade of existence, Skeletonwitch have been a very consistent band. Every couple of years or so (usually around Halloween) the Ohio blackened thrashers release a new album to positive reviews, then get back on the road as they continue their steady ascent.
A decade into their career, Skeletonwitch are running stronger than ever. The band is living proof that hard work will bring you success if you've got the belly for it. Of course, solid material is important as well and Skeletonwitch will release their fifth studio album, 'Serpents Unleashed,' on Oct. 29. We recently had a chat with guitarist Scott Hedrick to delve into all things Skeletonwitch.
