A beast misunderstood for it’s dark cravings that by it’s very nature protects us from death and disease, restoring balance and harmony, collecting the dead so that new life can grow. We wanted the accompanying video to be a meditation on life, decay and the passage of time. ” [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp9py7gKRwM] The cover artwork and album information of ‘Nowhere’ can be viewed here.

If anything, the band’s fifth record ‘Nowhere’, testifies to that and simultaneously celebrates the tenth anniversary of ESBEN AND THE WITCH. It’s been ten years since guitarist Thomas Fisher and drummer Caniel Copeman crossed paths and teamed up to write music. After a number of failed auditions for a vocalist, Fisher had a fated meeting with long time friend Rachel Davies. Davies turned out to be the missing piece to complete the newly founded “Esben and the Witch”, named after the foreboding Danish fairytale The self-released ’33 EP’ (2009) and a 7″ single entitled ‘Lucia, at the Precipice’ (2010) created a buzz that resulted in a first record deal for the band. 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. 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 third full-length ‘A New Nature’ (2014) on their own imprint, ‘Nostromo Records’. In 2016, the band signed to Season of Mist, releasing fourth opus ‘Older Terrors’ later that year. The record marked a point in the career of ESBEN AND THE WITCH on which the trio’s songwriting crystallized into a mix of beauty, emotion, and musical depth. The musicians established their reputation as a masterful live act once more, ultimately recording and releasing their impressive set at Roadburn Festival 2017 as a live album. Whilst maturing, experimenting and finetuning their sound, the three-piece is now back with their latest full-length, ‘Nowhere’. With haunting, tranquil passages, a primal fierceness expressed in punk-influenced, distorted riffs and the alluring voice of vocalist Rachel, the extremities of beauty, noise and power have been tested over the past decade. We invite you to hear its manifestation on ‘Nowhere’.
