Following a huge 2021, Witch Fever are set to have another massive year with the announcement of their debut album, Congregation.
Due out on October 21 via Music For Nations, the LP was produced by Pigs x7’s Sam Grant at Blank Studios in Newcastle, and, as vocalist Amy Walpole says, is “a step above what we’ve done before as we had a chance to experiment with sound and structure. It was our first opportunity to explore writing a body of work which was challenging but has been so rewarding!”
Amy adds: “It pushed our creative process because we also had to think about the songs sitting side by side on an album! We tried to break out of what makes a typical Witch Fever song whilst still being true to what makes our sound what it is.”
To coincide with the announcement, the band have shared the title-track and official video, with Amy explaining, “This is Alisha [Yarwood, guitar]’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!”
