John 5 took a different approach with the release of “Season Of The Witch,” choosing to share his new music with fans throughout 2016 by releasing several tracks individually in the form of various music videos. Those videos have garnered nearly a million views, collectively.

“Since music is so visual nowadays, I thought these videos would be the best way to get my music out there, and it seems to have worked – now everybody knows the songs on the record,” states John 5. “I put so much work into this record with the videos, the artwork, the songwriting and the playing – out of my catalog, this is by far my favorite solo record.”

Esben And The Witch Unleashes “Older Terrors”

Esben And The Witch is now streaming new dark ambient album “Older Terrors” online in full. “Older Terrors” is the band’s third album, and first with Season of Mist, due for worldwide release on November 4th.

Regarding this release, the band states: “Our forthcoming album ‘Older Terrors’ was written and recorded over the course of a year in Berlin, our adopted home. We’ve spent eight years getting here, sweating on stages, holed up in studios and exploring all that which inspires awe and terror.

“The album features four tracks. In this digital age of music we wanted to create a collection that worked together but could also be separated, each track standing alone, carving its own path and telling its own tale. This record is dedicated to the sublime. To Edward Young’s Night Thoughts, John Martin’s apocalyptic visions, Caspar David Friedrich’s forays into the forest and to the sparks of light that glimmer in times of utter darkness.”
