New Esben and the Witch website, remix

Though we’re just getting started with the new year we’ve already started counting down days again here as we eagerly await the street date of the debut Esben and the Witch album, Violet Cries, out on January 31st (UK/Europe) and February 8th (US, Rest of World).  We’re so eager in fact, that we’ve got a great offer on at the Matador store where you can pre-order the CD or LP for just $10 which also includes a free poster!

Whilst we’ve been arranging that the band have been busy working on a new website that is now up at, offering not only a glimpse to the booklet artwork but also a free download of an exclusive remix of ‘Marching Song’ by Snorkel.
