On the heels of their show-stealing performances last month on Ozzfest's second stage, Ohio's SKELETONWITCH have announced a fall headlining tour. The "North American Skullsplitter Tour 2010" will see the blackened-thrash animals supported by Prosthetic labelmates WITHERED and LANDMINE MARATHON.

SKELETONWITCH's Scott Hedrick commented, "We live for the road, so after six weeks of writing the next record, it's going to be great to get back on the stage, basement floor, your mother's house... whatever! Perhaps we'll break out some new tunes. We'll definitely break out some beers! It's also killer to tour with two other Prosthetic bands. Keeping it in the family!"

Singer/guitarist Mike Thompson from WITHERED, who will be joining the run late due to touring commitments with DANZIG, added, "We are really looking forward to the dates we're doing with our friends SKELETONWITCH. It's been a few years since we've gone out with them, so we've got a lot of ridiculousness to make up for. Life never ceases to surprise."

LANDMINE MARATHON's Ryan Butler commented, "We're ecstatic to be touring with our friends in SKELETONWITCH. It's gonna be an absolute blast. We're also extremely excited to be hitting a lot of cities that LANDMINE has never played before and looking forward to gaining fans and friends in those areas. A very metal time will be had by all!"

In addition, SKELETONWITCH has been confirmed as the headliner of the fourth annual All Hallows Eve Fest, taking place at The Backstage in Chillicothe, Ohio on October 23.

SKELETONWITCH's "Submit To The Suffering" video was directed by Don Tyler (MASTODON, RINGWORM) before the band hit the road for the summer, which included a Canadian tour supporting HIGH ON FIRE, a stop at Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and an appearance at this year's Ozzfest.

"Crushed Beyond Dust", a track from SKELETONWTICH's critically acclaimed 2009 album "Breathing the Fire", is now available for download via the newly launched Rock Band Network.

Rock Band Network, announced in July 2009, is a ground-breaking initiative that gives musicians, publishers and record labels the ability to author their original recordings into gameplay files to promote and sell their music as playable Rock Band tracks through the Rock Band Network Music Store (RBN Store).

"Crushed Beyond Dust" can be purchased for play here. A free demo version can be downloaded at this location.

SKELETONWITCH's "Worship the Witch" 10-inch EP was recently made available through Prosthetic Records.

Originally self-released released by the band as a follow-up to its first full-length, "At One With The Shadows", the four-song "Worship the Witch" EP has never been made available on vinyl — until now.

The artwork for "Worship the Witch" was reconfigured by John Baizley (KYLESA, BARONESS).
