It's called 'Wash The Sins Not Only The Face'

Esben & The Witch are set to release their new album 'Wash The Sins Not Only The Face' through Matador on January 21st.

Bold, dramatic and extremely ambitious, Esben & The Witch released debut album 'Violet Cries' back in 2011. A wonderful opening document, the Brighton trio followed the LP with some extremely special live performances.

Working on a follow up, it seems that the group are ready to break cover. Esben & The Witch are set to release 'Wash The Sins Not Only The Face' on January 21st, with Matador once again playing the obliging hosts. 

As yet, there's little to go on. However Daniel Copeman of the band has offered the following quote: “We had a clearer idea of what we wanted to achieve on this album, and how we could achieve it. We’re more focused, more confident.”

Alongside this, Esben & The Witch have uploaded new track 'Deathwaltz'. A typically uncompromising effort, you can download the song HERE or stream it below.
