A specially curated ESBEN AND THE WITCH headline show, their last until they return from the studio with album 2 in hand.
In their own words
We are proud to have had the opportunity to curate the followings evening entertainment. We will play for the last time in the UK this year, also performing will be two artists we are truly excited by. The Haxan Cloak, whose self-titled album is a stunning, doom-laden piece of work and Blood Music whose ferocious live shows and early material are most intriguing. In addition to this our long time collaborator and good friend Jonathan Hyde will be showcasing his photography. His work has adorned our record sleeves and inspired us in equal measure. The Quietus will be djing as well, purveyors of the finest music around.
“Instantly captivating… Like walking into a hidden attic full of ancient maps, portraits, furniture and ephemera… Romantic and gothic, a shadow of something intangible and otherworldly.” theQuietus.com
“They channel literature, nature and sorrow to create hauntingly ethereal tales of dark, foreboding menace.” The Guardian
“Violet Cries is reminiscent of a vivid nightmare: starkly beautiful, filled with the romance of suffering, with an other worldly quality that lingers with you.” The Times
“There is little arguing against Violet Cries being a very special album.” Loud & Quiet
“Fatalistic, seductive and quite unique.” Artrocker
