Mighty Ohio blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch have announced that they’re heading to Kurt Ballou’s Godcity Studios in Massachusetts this April to record a new album!
They’ll be hooking up with the Converge guitarist, who’s also produced for the likes of Kvelertak and Black Breath, to record the follow-up to awesome 2011 opus Forever Abomination.
“Happy New Year!,” says the band in a new update. “Hope everyone is off to a great start. First off, thanks to everyone who supported Skeletonwitch during this past year. We did some serious gigging in 2012, and your support on the road and of ‘Forever Abomination’ was overwhelming. We would be nowhere without you.
