Esben and the Witch have revealed the video for 'Dig Your Fingers In', a track from their forthcoming album 'A New Nature'. 'A New Nature' is due out September 8th on the band's own label, Nostromo Records, after parting with Matador Records. The band called on legendary producer Steve Albini for recording duties, and believe they were able to capture a more natural sound, giving the album a live sound feel.
To offset recording costs, the band set up a Pledge Music page and offered many levels of rewards for those who kicked in funds to help out. The rewards ranged from the new album in various formats, packages with the album and a t-shirt, handwritten lyrics, instruments, and all the way up to a private show. For a fan of the band, the rewards were enticing, and I couldn't resist, picking up the vinyl/t-shirt package.
As a bonus, about a month ahead of the public release date, all pledgers received a digital download of the album. I've listened to it two times beginning to end, and then a few songs required a replay. It's dark, expansive and bruising, and could very well be the soundtrack to your next nightmare. Rachel Davies insures that with intimate vocals that veer from menacing to pleading for life.
