For those who didn’t hear the news a few months ago, Chance Garnette is no longer the Skeletonwitch front man. He was frankly booted from the band due to a drinking problem. You can read more about that by CLICKING HERE.
In the wake of this, the band has brought on a new vocalist in conjunction with their inclusion on the 2016 Decibel Magazine Tour and continued music making. Today, the band unveiled that Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) was the man for the job!
Here’s the official statement from the band’s home Prosthetic Records in regards to all of this:
Today, the Ohio-based blackened metal quintet SKELETONWITCH – who will join Abbath, High On Fire and Tribulation on this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour, which kicks off March 17 – officially welcomes Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) as their new vocalist. Last month, the group recorded a new EP, due to be released this summer, with Clemans at Baltimore’s Developing Nations alongside producer Kevin Bernsten (Magrudergrind, Noisem, Mutilation Rites). A brief teaser of new music can be heard in the below video, in which Clemans discusses how he came to join the band.
“I’m very proud to be a part of the SKELETONWITCH camp, and I’m very excited about how the new EP turned out,” says Clemans. “Working with like-minded musicians is always a pleasure, and I’m confident that the new chapter of this band will carry theSKELETONWITCH banner properly and proudly.”
Adds guitarist Scott Hedrick, “We are extremely excited to announce Adam as the new singer for SKELETONWITCH. He’s a killer vocalist, lyricist, and all-around creative force. Please welcome him to the SKELETONWITCH family as we begin this new chapter. As always, thanks to everyone who has, and continues to, support us.”
Clemans appears alongside Abbath, High On Fire’s Matt Pike and Tribulation’s Johannes Andersson on the cover of the new issue of Decibel Magazine, which hits newsstands on March 2 and is available for pre-order at this location. A complete list of dates for the Decibel Magazine Tour appears below.
