Manchester-based alternative outfit Witch Fever share news of their long awaited debut album, Congregation, which is set for release on October 21st via Sony’s Music For Nations. Alongside the album’s announcement, the 4-piece have also shared the album’s title track.

Produced by Pigs x7’s Sam Grant, the album captures Witch Fever at their heaviest, and most challenging yet. The album’s title track, it’s lead single, is the first glimpse of what is to come. Featuring a Warpaint-inspired bass riff, the single sees Witch Fever make their departure into post-punk, showing the evolution of lead singer Amy Walpole’s vocals. 


Of the single, Amy states:

This is Alisha’s personal fave! It marks a new step in our development as songwriters as it’s something different from what we’ve done before. We allowed ourselves to experiment with space and dynamics and we love it!

It’s accompanying music video displays one of the first times that the band have ever worked with a ‘big team’ – with its result a polished, high-fashion look curated by Matt King. 

Refusing to fit into a box both in terms of gender and genre, Witch Fever have always defied all expectations – and Congregation is set to open listeners ears to punk without boundaries as the band usher in a new dawn of post-punk which is both accessible and most of all, a huge release.
