Skeletonwitch release to benefit ACHS

Legendary rockers SKELETONWITCH have released a limited-edition, hand-screened 180-gram vinyl edition of their acclaimed Billboard-charting 2013 release “Serpents Unleashed.” This is good news not only for music fans, but also for animal lovers, because 100% of the profits from sale of the edition will be donated to the Athens County Humane Society and Columbus’ Pets Without Parents! The members of Ohio’s most-loved heavy metal group have always been proud pet owners and are excited to have the opportunity to raise awareness and support animal welfare in their home region.

Limited to a one-time-only pressing of 100 copies, the 180-gram black LP includes a hand-screened, hand-numbered jacket with exclusive artwork (pictured above) and a hand-screened dust sleeve. It comes with a color poster and a sticker which both showcase the album's original masterful artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak), as well as a download card. The limited-edition LPs are on sale on a first-come, first-serve basis exclusively via
