Esben and the Witch have announced the release of their new LP, A New Nature. The album will be released on their own label, Nostromo Records, September 1st. The Brighton, England 3-piece band enlisted famed record producer Steve Albini to record the collection after a positive turnout for their Pledge Music fundraiser.
For this effort, the band has simplified the sound, no layers and loops, just the band in the studio making music.
After becoming a fan of the band last year based on what I called "the soundtrack to your next nightmare", I am anxious to hear this new collection of brooding and dark songs. I pitched in to their Pledge Music campaign, buying one of the vinyl/t-shirt packages, glad I did after hearing the first release. The first song for A New Nature, Blood Teachings is stunning, listen and love it.
