ALL THEM WITCHES RETURN WITH SLEEPING THROUGH THE WAR FEBRUARY 24th, 2017 

DECIBEL MAGAZINE PREMIERES FULL ALBUM STREAM  

ADDITIONAL U.S. TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED


“They are the real deal - psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their bummers like Blue Cheer.”  SPIN

NASHVILLE, TN (February 17, 2017) – The Nashville-based psych-rock quartet All Them Witches are set to return with Sleeping Through The War via New West Records February 24th, 2017. The 8-song, 46 minute set was produced by the Grammy Awarding winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and Decibel Magazine streamed the album in full a week ahead of release. They state, "All Them Witches have built their own sound over each release since their first in 2012, and they’re really setting themselves apart on their brand new full-length." Sleeping Through The War follows the band’s acclaimed Dying Surfer Meets His Maker released last year. The fundamental laws that govern Sleeping Through The War are the same that have made All Them Witches a cult favorite - big fuzz, deep grooves, cosmic vision -- but years of jamming their way across the country and three European tours in 2016 alone have made their songcraft more dynamic, more responsive, and years of psychic interactions between band members has lead them into a headier sonic space. Their recent performance at the Voodoo Music Festival was met with rave reviews with Stereogum calling them a highlight of the weekend and SPIN stating “They are the read deal - psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their bummers like Blue Cheer.” Noisey premiered the new video for the single “3-5-7” which can be seen Here while Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco premiered the video for the album’s first single, “Bruce Lee” Here. Sleeping Through The War will be available digitally, on compact disc, and LP and can be pre-ordered Here.

The band’s sound on Sleeping Through The War has become so expansive, you can hear echoes of Dr. John’s Gris-Gris, the glacial expanses of Sigur Ros, the stoner sludge of Kyuss, and the meditative om of the East. “We wrote it in about six days,” says guitarist Ben McLeod.  “Where in the past we would have just gone ahead and written and recorded in the studio, we were like nah we’re going to do it with Dave, let’s be prepared. It was real minimal, Dave didn’t want us to get too crazy.” He added, “We wanted a record you could crank. And we wanted girl backup singers.” It might seem like an odd detail -- the appearance of the Nashville songstress’ Caitlin Rose, Erin Rae, and Tristen on backing vocals add a classic rock flourish, at odds with their own work, but it makes sense within the context of the songs and within the context of their career. All Them Witches are at their Ummagumma moment, their Bare Trees, their Tres Hombres. Singer/bassist Charles Michael Parks offered, “We’re trying to get to something better -- not necessarily just as musicians -- but as people. I’ve always said that as we change as people, our music changes, that’s why we can never make the same records. I can’t be in one of those bands. I hope you’ll never hear ‘another predictable album from All Them Witches.’ There’s no art in that.”   

All Them Witches have also announced additional North American tour dates in support of Sleeping Through The War. The tour kicks off in the band’s hometown of Nashville, TN on February 24th.


“They are the real deal — psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their bummers like Blue Cheer.” - Spin

“A woozy, hypnotic piece of brooding, voodoo psychedelia, nestling somewhere between Dr John, The Doors at their most wired, and Sigur Ros.” - Classic Rock

"An immensely powerful work of art from start to finish." - Metal Recusants

"Between the album’s imaginative, original art work and music that follows suit, this is one CD you’ll want to hold in your hands and stare at as you strap in and let the inspired music unspool." - American Songwriter

"Sleeping Through the War is All Them Witches' most fully realized set to date, a sprawling yet remarkably focused effort that takes their exploratory, often spliced-together work ethic in a more stridently song-oriented direction. That's not to say that the band has abandoned the bluesy, promethean space rock of prior outings -- you can practically smell the smoke wafting into the control room during the hypnotic 'Alabaster' and the rootsy, nearly ten-minute closer, 'Internet' -- but less proto-metal offerings like 'Don't Bring Me Coffee' and 'Bruce Lee' evoke Queens of the Stone Age far more than they do Hawkwind." - AllMusic

"If smoking weed in a friend’s basement as a teenager had a soundtrack, Sleeping Through the War by All Them Witches would be it." - Mxdwn

"Sleeping Through The War' strikes the perfect balance of the familiar and the alien to distill 45 minutes of musical opium. Bliss." - Clash
