History[1]Edit

All Them Witches' debut album Our Mother Electricity was released in 2012 from Elektrohasch.[2] Soon after came their EP, Extra Pleasant, which was recorded with two microphones directly to a 4 track cassette tape recorder.[3] In 2013, the band's second studio album, Lightning at the Door, was originally self-released via their own Bandcamp page,[4] and later marketed by Tone Tree Music. Lightning At The Door was re-released in 2016[5] by their new label, New West Records, who they signed to in summer 2015.[6] In February 2015, the band released the official live album At The Garage.[7] 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.[8] Their fourth studio album Sleeping Through the War was released in February 2017 on New West Records.[9] On May 3, 2018 it was announced that Jonathan Draper was replacing Allan Van Cleave on keyboards.[10] In an interview at Download Festival 2018, Ben and Robby made clear that the change was permanent and that Allan had left the band.[11] In October 2018, Parks announced that the band would continue as a three piece without Draper.[12]
