Esben & The Witch

Dramatic and ethereal, not to mention captivating, the recorded material from UK's Esben & The Witch recall moments of Kate Bush, Bauhaus, Portishead, or the darker side of indie pop. The trio have signed with Matador and will welcome the new Marching Song 12" on Oct 11th and a long-player next year, but in the meantime will hit the road for a string of US dates that will include THREE shows in NYC. One of those dates is TONIGHT (9/20) at Glasslands. It's their first-ever US show and tickets are still on sale. Mon Khmer, Grooms, and Megafortress are also on the bill.

The second NYC show will be supporting Foals at the sold-out Bowery Ballroom on 10/1 (right before they head to Vegas for Matador 21) and the third will see the band supporting A Sunny Day In Glasgow at Knitting Factory on 10/26 (tickets).

Esben & The Witch recently dropped a video for the title track to the Marching Song 12", dig on the video for that, as well as all tour dates below.
