UK pysch/garage/punk trio The Wytches are set to release their debut album via Partisan this summer. While we wait for that, the band have made a video for last year's "Robe for Juda" single. Shot on VHS, it's like a very twisted school play. You can watch it below.
Last here for SXSW, The Wytches will tour North America properly this summer, including West Coast dates with Cloud Nothings and METZ. They're also playing some East Coast headlining shows, including two in NYC: Mercury Lounge on July 24 and Glasslands on July 25. Tickets to Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (4/18) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (4/16) at noon. Tickets for Glasslands go on sale Friday at 10 AM.
All dates are listed, along with the new video and an NPR "Field Recording" with singer Kristian Bell from SXSW, below...
