All Them Witches share video for "Dirt Preachers," tour (2015, 2016)

Nashville psych rock band All Them Witches and Canadian animator/musician Chad VanGaalen have conjured up a trippy, technicolor video for heavy rocker “Dirt Preachers.” In the surreal animation, two mysterious cloaked travelers journey from village to village seeking out colorful orbs and objects with transformative powers, eventually finding the ultimate one.

Fresh off a tour with Kadavar and The Sword, and a much-talked about two-night hometown stand, All Them Witches will head back out on the road November 30 for several more weeks of shows, including Brooklyn, D.C., Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, Montreal, Toronto and Detroit. The revered live band will close out the year at home opening for Moon Taxi at the War Memorial Auditorium and then head back out on a headline tour that will kick off January 13 in Louisville, Ky. In late February they will head over to Europe for their first time for shows in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Greece, France and Italy.
The band’s just-released third album, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker (New West Records), is the newest chapter in the foursome’s exploration of rock music’s furthest reaches. Recorded in a remote cabin, a top an isolated mountain overlooking the tourist mecca of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., Dying Surfer mixes together a diverse sonic palette and was designed to be experienced as a full album, where core songs lead into each other. Opener, “Call Me Star,” starts with downbeat acoustic arpeggios, slowly melting into grittier chords, leading into the firebrand distorted bass of the barn-burning next track, “El Centro.” “Dirt Preachers” is a pummeling slice of Sabbathy rock with a big catchy chorus. “Open Passageways” is at once cerebral and sweeping while closer, “Blood And Sand/Milk And Endless Water,” is a seven-minute long desert-rock jam.
Heavy, heady and hypnotic, All Them Witches concoct a powerful and potent psychedelic sound that fuses bluesy soul, Southern swagger and thunderous hard rock. With their transfixing releases and a jam-filled live show, the band has amassed a devoted following and have become something of a sensation in the underground rock scene.
