Mystifyingly goblin-obsessed melodic death-metal outfit Nekrogoblikon have dropped a savage new cut "The Skin Thief," the lead single off the band's forthcoming album Welcome to Bonkers. The record — the group's first since 2015's Heavy Meta, which featured a guest turn by Andrew W.K. — was produced by Jason Suecof (Trivium, the Black Dahlia Murder) and is due out April 13th. The Cali sextet (if you include band mascot John Goblikon) hits the road starting tomorrow with Rings of Saturn, Allegaeon, Lorna Shore, Entheos and Gloom, with the trek running through March 30th. All dates can be found here.
