NEWS: Esben and the Witch are steaming ‘Older Terrors’ and have announced new UK tour dates

After already sharing a handful of tracks from the LP, atmospheric rockers Esben and the Witch are now streaming their new album Older Terrors in full.  The record isn’t out until next Friday (4th November) but you can listen to the whole thing in advance on YouTube now.

The band say of the new LP: “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.”  Listen to the record in full below.

The band have also announced that they will be touring across the UK next February. Details of the dates below.

18th February – Electrowerkz, London
20th February – The Exchange, Bristol
21st February – Soup Kitchen, Manchester
22nd February – Hope & Ruin, Brighton
