Esben and the The Witch – “Warpath” video debuts and US tour dates announced

As anticipation continues to grow for Esben and the Witch’s debut full-length Violet Cries (album out Jan 31 in UK/Feb 8 in US/Feb 23 in Japan, pre-order it here), Pitchfork brings us the band’s second breathtaking video (following last year’s awesome “Marching Song” clip).
