Esben and the Witch Map Out North American Tour

Esben and the Witch Map Out North American Tour
Now that they've got new album Wash the Sins Not Only the Face under their belt, goth-y slowcore troupe Esben and the Witch are hitting the road for a full-blown North American tour in support of it.

The tour will kick off on America's Eastern seaboard, passing northwest through Montreal and Toronto on their way across to the West coast, where they'll swing through Vancouver before heading south. We hear the band's something of a killer live act, so if you're a fan of their records, this might be the time to catch them in you hometown. Find the band's dates below, courtesy of the Matablog, along with the band's video for track "Despair."
