Esben & The Witch

Gothy UK post-punks Esben & The Witch last visited the U.S. while on tour with Foals last year (pics from Bowery Ballroom). They'll return this March for some headlining shows of their own including one in Brooklyn at the Bell House on March 4th and an early show at Mercury Lounge on March 5th. Tickets for Mercury Lounge are currently on AMEX presale and go on general sale at noon on 1/21, the same time that Bell House tickets go on sale.

Esben & The Witch will release their new LP Violet Cries via Matador on 2/8. Preorder that from Matador, and check out all tour dates as well as what Jack Black (yes, that Jack Black) thinks of the LP, and check out two official videos, below. Grab the new Snorkel Remix of "Marching Song" above.

In related news, Foals are back on the road this spring too, and will play Terminal 5 on May 4th with Freelance Whales. Tickets go on sale Friday 1/21 at noon.
