SKELETONWITCH ANNOUNCE “U.S. ABOMINATION TOUR” HEADLINING DATES MUTILATION RITES TO JOIN AS SUPPORT ON SECOND HALF

Midwestern metal heathens SKELETONWITCH will headline a lengthy U.S. tour this fall, with direct support from thrash act Havok. The tour will kick off in SKELETONWITCH’s hometown of Athens, OH on September 14th and will also include support from Early Graves for the tour's first half. PROSTHETIC labelmates MUTILATION RITES will replace Early Graves on the latter half of the tour, starting October 17th in Houston, TX. Full dates are listed below.

SKELETONWITCH are about to embark on a separate North American headlining tour, which kicks off this Friday, July 13th and will include direct support from Barnburner. The band is currently supporting their critically acclaimed 2011 release “Forever Abomination,” which cracked the Billboard Top 200 and earned the act their first national cover story in Decibel Magazine (which included the album in its Top 40 of 2011). The group just completed a successful European tour that saw them play alongside the likes of Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne, Machine Head, Anthrax and many more.

Brooklyn-based "filthy black metallers" MUTILATION RITES will be supporting their recently released debut full-length “Empyrean,” produced by Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC) and described by Metal Hammer as “fucking furious" and "remorseless in its pure and all-encompassing attack on the senses." Over the past several months, the group has performed alongside the likes of Nachtmystium, Hull and Alcest in addition to playing such high profile events as South By Southwest (SXSW) and the Gilead Music Festival.
