All Them Witches Premiere Sleeping Through The War
This past Friday, Exit/In hosted an album release party for Nashville natives, All Them Witches, where they debuted their latest album Sleeping Through The War. If you're a fan of the '60s and '70s, you will love them. The band formed in 2012 and released their first album, Our Mother Electricity. Since then they have creatively released more albums leading to Sleeping Through The War.
Exit/In was sold out and the venue was packed before the opener, Good Buddy came on stage. Shiner Bock beer was sold out (if that tells you anything). The crowd was nice and drunk and ready for All Them Witches. Once Good Buddy’s performance was over, the crowd became restless. A few people I talked to told me this was their first time seeing the band, and they hadn’t had a chance to even check out the new album, which dropped on the morning of the Nashville show.
A loud hum filled Exit/In. The anticipation hung above the drunken crowd. All Them Witches entered the stage and began their debut with “3-5-7," which led into “Alabaster," my personal favorite. People were jamming and crowd surfing. The venue had been transported back to 1971.
They played the new album in its entirety and looped in songs from their previous album Lightning At The Door. They ended with the opening song from Sleeping Through The War, “Bulls." Then graced us with one more song, an encore of “Mountain." After the show, we all filtered out knowing our musical journey of the night was over.
There aren’t words for the music that All Them Witches create. They’re going on tour starting this week. Check out dates and buy tickets here.
