HistoryEdit

All Them Witches' debut album Our Mother Electricity was released in 2012 from Elektrohasch.[1] Soon after came their EP, Extra Pleasant, which was recorded with two microphones directly to a 4 track cassette tape recorder.[2] In 2013, the band's second studio album, Lightning at the Door, was originally self-released via their own Bandcamp page,[3] and later marketed by Tone Tree Music. Lightning At The Door was re-released in 2016[4] by their new label, New West Records, who they signed to in summer 2015.[5] In February 2015, the band released the official live album At The Garage. Later in the year, they self-released their third studio album Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, which was recorded in six days in a remote cabin in Tennessee and received a score of 72 on Metacritic. Their fourth studio album Sleeping Through the War was released in February 2017 on New West Records. On May 3, 2018 it was announced that Jonathan Draper was replacing Allan Van Cleave on keyboards.[6] In an interview at Download Festival 2018, Ben and Robby made clear that the change was permanent and that Allan had left the band.[7] In October 2018, Parks announced that the band would continue as a three piece without Draper.[8]
