Chance Garnette Not Returning to Skeletonwitch
I don’t think anyone will find this news particularly surprising, but it seems worth mentioning: if you were hoping that Skeletonwitch would patch things up with frontman and cunnilingus connoisseur Chance Garnette, those hopes were for naught. Following yesterday’s announcement that the band would part of the 2016 Decibel Magazine Tour, they posted a message on Facebook promising “New tunes, new singer, new tour, new chapter for SKELETONWITCH!”
The identity of the band’s new vocalist remains a mystery. It could be Battlemaster’s Andy Horn, who took Garnette’s spot on tour when the singer was first dismissed in April for alcoholism. It could be someone else. Personally, I’m hoping it’s this young lady, but that’s probably a long shot.
Presumably, we’ll know the answer prior to March 17, when the Decibel tour kicks off. In addition to Skeletonwitch, that package will include Abbath, High on Fire, and Tribulation; get dates here. You can also listen to a very brief sample of some new Skeletonwitch music here.
