The tour is in support of their long awaited album “Only The Ruthless Remain” released in June through Relapse Records. We waited almost 10 years for SKINLESS to assault our ears again with their complex form of death metal. SKINLESS is currently made up of founding guitarist Noah Carpenter, vocalist Sherwood Webber, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac, with the addition of second guitarist, Dave Matthews.
Oh yeah, we mentioned a free download…. well here it is: “Satan Is Living” is available for free to the first 50 people to make a purchase through the new SKINLESS webstore plus get a “Only The Ruthless Remain poster. Visit the store at THIS LOCATION.
Now for the story behind the song “Satan Is Living”:
“Satan Is Living” is an original tune by the Sunshine Family Ministry and serves as an unofficial Only The Ruthless Remain bonus track. The Sunshine Family Ministry was a fanatical religious cult from the ’80s that committed mass suicide by skinning themselves alive… (fast forward thirty years to the gruesome “Skinless” video). The song “Satan Is Living” was recovered from an old reel-to reel recorder recovered at the scene.
Check out the visceral video for their self titled track “Skinless”:
Only The Ruthless Remain is currently available on CD, LP and digitally via Relapse Records. Limited Relapse 25 Year Anniversary editions of the CD and LP are also be available. For order bundles, visit THIS LOCATION. Digital versions, go HERE.
