Esben And The Witch Return With 'Butoh' [Listen]

Ahead of their split 12" with Thought Forms seeing release on Geoff Barrow of Portishead's Invada Records next week, Brighton trio Esben and the Witch have unveiled the second of their two contributions to the split: the sprawling, dissonant 'Butoh'.
 
Initially springing to life with the sort of cavernous, jangling guitars you might associate with Evol-era Sonic Youth, the track is gradually overtaken by wave after wave of ravenous distortion and Rachel Davies' stark unadorned vocals.
 
The band have also lined up a string of dates both around the release of the split and towards the summer as they gear towards their Steve Albini-produced, Pledge-funded third album; their first since parting ways with indie powerhouse Matador Records, set to be self-released by the band.
 
Dates are as follows:
Mar 29th | Buffalo Bar, London
Apr 10th | Moon Club, Cardiff
Apr 11th | Rise Records, Bristol
Apr 13th | The Hope, Brighton
May 10th | Beyond the Redshift Festival, London
May 25th | The Georgian Theatre, Stockport
Jul 19th | Latitude Festival, (performing live score to La Antena)
Aug 8th-10th | Supernormal Festival, Oxfordshire
 
Esben and the Witch and Thought Forms' split 12" is available from April 7 on Invada Records.
