Heavy metal titans SKELETONWITCH are excited to share their new EP, The Apothic Gloom, has debuted in the Billboard music charts at #7 for Hard Music, while landing in the Top 20 for Top Independent Albums and Top 100 for Top Current Albums. Lauded as "a slab of delightfully heavy yet thirst-quenching metal" that's "everything you love about SKELETONWITCH in a perfect 21 minutes", you can now stream The Apothic Gloom in full on Spotify before picking up one of the few remaining copies left on limited-edition vinyl and cassette tape from Prosthetic Records webstore.

To further the celebration of it's success, the band have teamed up with Indiana based craft brewery 3 FLOYDS to debut the "Red Death Sour" Ale! Guitarist Scott Hedrick announced, "It's no secret that SKELETONWITCH have an affinity for beer. It only makes sense that we partnered with one of the most "metal" and consistently top-notch breweries out there. 'The Red Death Awaits You. Fall into the Depths.'"

At 8.5%, the "Red Death Sour" is a thirst-quenchimg tart ale with juicy hints of tropical fruit-pineapple, mellow funky cheese and a slight barnyard dry finish topped with cherry, raspberry, pear and plum aromas. 3 Floyds Head Brewer, Chris Boggess adds, "Red Death is the product of an unholy blend of a sour grand cru fermented and aged in a foeder for 18 months and a Cherry Imperial Berliner Weisse". The beer will be available on tap and bottled at 3 Floyds Brewery in Munster, Indiana and throughout their distribution area (Chicagoland, Indiana and select cities in OH, KY and WI) on Labor Day. Due to the year long fermenting process of the sour, the first batch was limited to only 100 barrels, make sure to check www.3floyds.com to find out where you can pick one up before they are gone.

Having just returned from a successful jaunt throughout Canada, including a stop at Heavy Montreal (MASTODON, CARCASS), SKELETONWITCH will soon hit the pavement once again for a headlining run across the U.S. on the Noisey presents "Curse Of The Dead" tour with support from IRON REAGAN, OATHBREAKER and select dates including ALL HELL (9/28), GATECREEPER (9/29-10/18) or HOMEWRECKER (10/18-30).
