Ohio metal quartet Skeletonwitch will release their first new album in five years this summer. The outing has been titled Devouring Radiant Light and will hit streets on July 20 through Prosthetic Records. Its lead single, "Fen of Shadows" is online now and can be streamed below.

Guitarist Scott Hedrick describes "Fen of Shadows" as "Skeletonwitch 2.0," stating, "the song travels further down the rabbit hole with more elaborate arrangements, layers of wailing guitar, and strong dynamic shifts. It's the most fully-formed example of what this band has become." New vocalist Adam Clemans notes that the single lyrically "sets up the theme for the entire record. It's of my belief that in times of turmoil and darkness, we as humans, learn the most about our true selves. If you look within, you will always find light, passion and dedication. To what exactly, is up to the individual. For us, it's creating music together and as individuals."
