ESBEN AND THE WITCH will embark onto the first leg of their winter tour in Europe at the Bogen F in Zurich, Switzerland tomorrow, Wednesday 15th of February. The British atmospheric rockers will continue with shows in France, the UK, and Belgium. After a month long break, a second leg visiting Germany, The Netherlands, and Denmark will follow in April. Please see the list below of currently confirmed shows. More dates will be announced in due time. ESBEN AND THE WITCH will be touring in support of their latest album 'Older Terrors', which was released on 4th of November 2016.

ESBEN AND THE WITCH commented: "Our new album, 'Older Terrors' was written and recorded over the course of a year in Germany’s capital Berlin, our adopted home. We have spent eight years getting here, sweating on stages, holed up in studios and exploring all that which inspires awe and terror. The album features four tracks. In this digital age of music we wanted to create a collection that worked together but could also be separated, each track standing alone, carving its own path and telling its own tale. This record is dedicated to the sublime. To Edward Young's 'Night Thoughts', John Martin's apocalyptic visions, Caspar David Friedrich's forays into the forest and to the sparks of light that glimmer in times of utter darkness."

Something ancient and primordial stalks the four tracks on the fourth full-length of ESBEN AND THE WITCH. The haunting voice of Rachel Davies weaves arcane spells through hypnotic patterns. Interlaced in these invocations is the emotive string sorcery provided by guitarist Thomas Fisher, while Daniel Copeman evokes a state of trance with his shamanic drumming and wide sonic landscapes painted by electronic synthesizer magic.

ESBEN AND THE WITCH were formed in Brighton, a windswept English seaside resort, when Daniel Copeman hooked up with Thomas Fisher in 2008. After a number of failed auditions for a vocalist, Fisher had a chance meeting with longtime friend Rachel Davies, who proved to be the perfect fit as singer for the newly created three-piece. A band name was found in the foreboding Danish fairytale "Esben and the Witch".

The self-released '33 EP' (2009) and a 7" single entitled 'Lucia, at the Precipice' (2010) caused a vibrant buzz that led to a first record deal. With the single 'Marching Song' (2010), ESBEN AND THE WITCH heralded their debut full-length 'Violet Cries', a Gothic post-rock nightmare that hit the stores in January 2011. The album was immediately picked up by critics and fans alike, managing to climb to #13 in the UK Indie Chart. Two singles, 'Warpath' and 'Chorea' and the 'Hexagons' digital EP followed in the same year.

2012 saw the trio commence work on their sophomore album 'Wash the Sins Not Only the Face' which was released in early 2013 and again scored critical praise. ESBEN AND THE WITCH decided to take matters into their own hands and published the third full-length 'A New Nature' (2014) on their own imprint, 'Nostromo Records'. The band travelled to Chicago to record with Steve Albini and the result was an intense, sprawling creation inspired by the trio's increasingly heavy live show.

Having established themselves as a highly individual act and an excellent reputation as an outstanding live force, ESBEN AND THE WITCH have honed their songwriting skills to the sharp crystalline edge that now manifests itself clearly on 'Older Terrors'. Beauty, emotion, and musical depth celebrate a glorious wedding on these tracks. You are herewith invited to join this aural feast.
