Recorded at Grammy Award winner Liam Watson’s 8-track analogue Toe Rag Studios in Hackney and co-produced by the band’s Kristian Bell and Bill Ryder-Jones (ex The Coral), the record drops on Monday 25th August.

PRE-ORDER SIGNED CD/LP FROM THE HEAVENLY EMPORIUM

To coincide with the announcement of the album — which features the singles ‘Gravedweller’ and ‘Robe For Juda’ as well as live favourite ‘Digsaw’ — the band have shared the brand new video for ‘Wire Frame Mattress’ directed by the great Steve Gullick, who says of the shoot:

“Promo videos have never really been my thing, I did a few a decade or so ago but have steered clear ever since. When I was asked to shoot a video for The Wytches however, I jumped at the chance — this band are special and I want to be involved. At no point did the prospect seem daunting — we just did it and it was easy.”
