Witches Mark Releases New Single “The Butcher’s Bill Comes Due”

Witches Mark just uploaded new track “The Butcher’s Bill Comes Due,” which can be heard in the YouTube player below.

Taken from a forthcoming third album, “The Butcher’s Bill Comes Due” arrives after previous single “Road Razor” released this past June, the first new studio material Witches Mark has released since last full-length album “Witching Metal Ritual” in 2013.

Guitarist and founding member Robert Williams elaborates: “After we finished playing out in support of the last record we got a little busy playing in some other bands. I joined Ignitor on guitar in January of 2015 and Robb Bockman (Guitar/Vocals) recently joined the black metal band Uada on bass and has been touring with them.

“Both band’s have been doing really well for themselves and we’ve stayed consistently busy but wherever we’d go people kept asking us about Witches Mark and we’ve always known that band was something really special so we got together over the holidays and wrote all of the material for the next album. We hope to have this new record completed by the first quarter of next year.”
