All Them Witches Post New Single “1×1”; European Tour Starts Nov. 16

Well, hello there, new All Them Witches single. Wasn’t really expecting you until I guess two days ago when I stumbled on the social medias notification of your impending arrival. The Nashville three-piece are headed to Europe in a couple weeks to tour alongside Ghost and Tribulation, in what would seem to be a pretty big deal for all involved parties. It’s All Them Witches‘ second Euro run of the year, and unless I’m mistaken they were there for festivals and then some too — yup, they did Hellfest — so it’s not uncovered ground even if these are inevitably bigger venues and different circumstances. People like that Ghost band. They’re, like, a thing that people like.

Fair enough. As it happens, All Them Witches, as a band and in my experience of them as people, are a thing I like, so the new single “1×1” is among the most welcome news I’ve had in a while. The track would seem to take a somewhat grim lyrical view — if one imagines the lyrics to be about the touring experience also covered on their most recent album, 2018’s ATW (review here), it’s something of a surprise they’re hitting the road at all; hopefully that’s not the case — but one way or the other, it’s the heaviest tone I’ve heard from the band in at least the last half-decade, and bassist Charles Michael Parks, Jr. continues to grow ever more commanding as a singer. He shines here in subtle layers of harmonized vocal flourish — note that Parks, guitarist Ben McLeod and drummer/cover artist Robby Staebler are all credited with vocals — that, to All Them Witches fans, should be nothing less than a joy to behold, whatever the lyrical subject matter accompanying. In company with McLeod‘s all-in prog guitar solo, short but effective, and Staebler‘s recognizably fluid roll, they are an ever-changing, ever-growing unit who nonetheless remain uniquely their own.

If you’re still reading this and haven’t torn yourself from the verbiage to click play, hey, thanks. Otherwise, five of the best minutes of your day await you at the bottom of this post, and you might want to grab a download while you can, because All Them Witches have a habit of putting these things out on Bandcamp and then removing them and never talking about them again. Like a secret. Shhh.
