The past year has seen the band touring the world with headline tours across the USA, UK and Europe following on from huge praise for Violet Cries described by The Times as “Reminiscent of a vivid nightmare: starkly beautiful, filled with the romance of suffering, and with an otherworldly quality that lingers with you”.
Esben And The Witch mark the end of a triumphant year with performances at Swn in Cardiff on October 22nd and a night at London’s Corsica Studios curated by the band on November 16th. There will also be a special event on November 4th, details will be revealed closer to the time.

‘Hexagons I (The Fall)’
‘Hexagons II (The Flight)’
‘Hexagons III (The Surge)’
