Ten years after emerging from the basements and DIY spots of Athens, Ohio, the blackened thrash-metal masters of Skeletonwitch still ride strong and fast. No stranger to the road, Skeletonwitch has paid its dues with hundreds of thousands of miles traveled and innumerable stages leveled. This fall the band embarks on a monthlong engagement with previous tourmates the Black Dahlia Murder, stopping at the Firebird in St. Louis on Friday, November 22. Guitarist Scott Hedrick recently took some time out to answer a few questions for us about life on the road, wearing one's own band's merch and jamming out on a boat.
