All Them Witches Post Video for “Dirt Preachers”

Nashville four-piece All Them Witches may or may not be about to unveil their first European tour dates, presumably for sometime early in 2016, but one never knows. It’s a prospect they teased the other day by posting, “Europe: you are about to be very happy,” which would be a notable change for Europe of late, and whenever they do go, it will be in support of their newly-issued third album, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker (review here), the mellow vibes and resonant grooves of which continue to enthrall, and which they’ve already supported in the US alongside Kadavar and The Sword, which is no minor shakes as far as touring partners goes.

The reason I say early 2016 is more likely for a European run, in fact, is because All Them Witches will spend most of December and January on the road in the States, dipping into Canada for Montreal and Toronto shows but mostly focusing on the East and West Coasts, though hitting select spots between too. They’re setting themselves up for 2016 to be a pretty road-heavy year, but when they started touring to support their second album, Lightning at the Door (review here), they worked quickly to make wider intentions known. A prior European appearance had been confirmed for Desertfest Belgium in 2014 that fell through, but it seems like it won’t be long before they cover that ground as well. Could just as easily be a Spring tour in time for festival season that’s going to be announced as it could something prior. We’ll just have to wait and find out.

To support the tiding-over process, the band has newly revealed a video for Dying Surfer Meets His Maker‘s most raucous track, “Dirt Preachers.” The song, also an advance single from the album, is set to an animated narrative of wizardry, questing and I’m not even sure what else, but a demon shows up and all hell seems to break loose, so yeah, it’s fitting enough. If I’m not mistaken — and I’m not — they had given a sneak preview of the clip on Halloween before removing it again, but this time it seems to be out there permanently. Directed and animated by Chad VanGaalen, you can find it below, followed by the currently-confirmed tour dates. When I hear of more, I’ll post accordingly.
