Mixing influences of psychedelic rock, hard rock, stoner, and blues rock, All Them Witches are one of the most diverse and dynamic bands to emerge from Nashville’s local scene in the last decade. The foursome gained an early reputation for their thrilling live shows, mostly built on their musical chemistry and ability to jam rather than solely relying on structured songs. They got their start in 2012 with their debut album Our Mother Electricity, but really gained momentum the following year with Lightning at the Door, which showcased their southern infused style of songwriting perfectly paired with rowdy guitars, attracting the attention of buzzy label New West Records, who re-released the LP as well as the band’s conceptual third effort, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, in 2015. In the subsequent years, the group’s reach grew exponentially, and as tours and festival outings get bigger and more visible, they continued to evolve their sound across a few more great records- 2017’s Dave Cobb produced breakout Sleeping Through the War, 2018’s more minimalist and naturalistic ATW, and most recent formal full-length, 2020’s Nothing as the Ideal, which was recorded at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios, and really felt like a perfect distillation of the band’s signature sound.
Since then, All Them Witches have welcomed back keyboard player Allan Van Cleave, who departed for a few years just before ATW, and spent 2022 releasing a single each month plus a 13th bonus track, effectively culminating in an album-length collection dubbed the “Baker’s Dozen” project, and have continued to tour the nation with their renowned and electrifying live show. For their latest stop at home, the band announced a return to The Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 27, where they’ll play the three records that arguably put them on the map- Lightning at the Door, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, and Sleeping Through the War– in their entirety. That date is nearly sold out (a few tickets are available here), so due to popular demand, the rockers added a second show, on Oct. 28, where they’ll play a completely different, more conventional set of songs from their full catalog, and will be joined by blues rockers GA-20. Tickets for night two are still available here as well, but we’re also excited to announce that we’re giving away a pair of tickets to that 10/28 show to one lucky fan! Preview both performers and enter below.
All Them Witches will perform Friday, Oct. 27 and Saturday, Oct. 28 (with GA-20) at The Ryman Auditorium. The show are all ages, begin at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $29.50 to 59.50 here (10/27) and here (10/28).
