Bristol: All Them Witches at the Bristol Bierkeller

October 07, 2017 at Bristol Bierkeller in Bristol.


Sat 7th Oct
Bristol Bierkeller
£10adv ***ON SALE FRIDAY 24th FEB***




“They are the real deal – psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their bummers like Blue Cheer.” SPIN The Nashville-based psych-rock quartet All Them Witches are set to return with Sleeping
Through The War via New West Records on February 24th, 2017. The 8-song, 46 minute set was produced by the Grammy Awarding winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and follows the band’s acclaimed Dying Surfer Meets His Maker released last year. The fundamental laws that govern Sleeping Through The War are the same that have made All Them Witches a cult favorite – big fuzz, deep grooves, cosmic vision — but
years of jamming their way across the country and three European tours in 2016 alone have made their songcraft more dynamic, more responsive, and years of psychic interactions between band members has lead them into a headier sonic space. Their recent performance at the Voodoo Music Festival was met with rave reviews with Stereogum calling them a highlight of the weekend and SPIN stating “They are the read deal – psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their bummers like Blue Cheer.” Noisey ​premiered the new video for the single “3-5-7” today which can be seen HERE. Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco previously premiered the video for the album’s first single, “Bruce Lee,” which can be seen HERE as well. Sleeping Through The War will be available digitally, on compact disc, and LP and is now available for pre-order via Pledge Music.

The band’s sound on Sleeping Through The War ​has become so expansive, you can hear echoes of Dr. John’s Gris-Gris, the glacial expanses of Sigur Ros, the stoner sludge of Kyuss, and the meditative om of the East. “We wrote it in about six days,” says guitarist Ben McLeod. “Where in the past we would have just gone ahead and written and recorded in the studio, we were like nah we’re going to do it with Dave, let’s be prepared. It was real minimal, Dave didn’t want us to get too crazy.” He added, “We wanted a record you could crank. And we wanted girl backup singers.” It might seem like an odd detail — the appearance of the Nashville songstress’ Caitlin Rose, Erin Rae, and Tristen on backing vocals add a classic rock flourish, at odds with their own work, but it makes sense within the context of the songs and within the context of their career. All Them Witches are at their Ummagumma moment, their Bare Trees, their Tres Hombres. Singer/bassist Charles Michael Parks offered, “We’re trying to get to something better — not necessarily just as musicians — but as people. I’ve always said that as we change as people, our music changes, that’s why we can never make the same records. I can’t be in one of those bands. I hope you’ll never hear ‘another predictable album from All Them Witches.’ There’s no art in that.”
