Brighton trio Esben and the Witch were in my alternative new bands 2010 post yesterday, today it was annouced they've been signed to the Matador label and are to release a new single on October 10th.
You can pre-order it on the above links and get the mp3's sent to you immediately (well with email response) - do it because this will sell-out pronto.
Marching Song was originally on the demo EP '33', this however is an updated version, and the single comes backed with two brand spanking new B-sides. Whoop.
Esben's music is dark, haunting and frankly amazing.
There's a whole host of US dates. UK dates annouced so far:
4 Paris Inrockuptibles @ La Boule Noir
10 London Electrowerkz
11 Manchester Deaf Institute
12 Glasgow Captains Rest
14 Leeds Constellations Festival
Here is the '33' version of "Marching Song"
